As the condition progresses, he fears becoming entombed

:05:33.:05:36.

In fact, I could be virtually catatonic.

:05:37.:05:54.

I'll be conceivably in a Locked-In Syndrome.

:05:55.:05:56.

That prospect is just not one I can accept.

:05:57.:06:01.

Mr Conway came to a preliminary High Court hearing in March,

:06:02.:06:04.

but now feels too weak to make the journey from Shropshire.

:06:05.:06:08.

His lawyers will say he wants the right to a peaceful

:06:09.:06:11.

and dignified death while he still has the capacity

:06:12.:06:14.

It's three years since the Supreme Court dismissed the last

:06:15.:06:24.

major challenge to the Suicide Act, which involved Tony Nicklison,

:06:25.:06:27.

Since then, MPs overwhelmingly rejected proposals to

:06:28.:06:31.

Supporters of the current law say it protects the weak and vulnerable

:06:32.:06:37.

but Mr Conway says the law is broken, and condemns him

:06:38.:06:40.

And we will talk about that more in-depth later.

:06:41.:06:55.

The Brexit Secretary, David Davis, has called for both sides to "get

:06:56.:06:58.

down to business" this morning, as the next round of negotiating

:06:59.:07:01.

Mr Davis is meeting the European Commission's chief

:07:02.:07:05.

Key issues will include the future rights of EU citizens in the UK

:07:06.:07:09.

and British citizens living in other member states along with the Irish

:07:10.:07:12.

border and a financial settlement from the UK.

:07:13.:07:14.

A memorial forest is being dedicated to the victims

:07:15.:07:17.

of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 today, near Amsterdam's Schipol

:07:18.:07:20.

298 people died when the plane was shot down over eastern Ukraine

:07:21.:07:23.

International prosecutors say a Russian missile was fired

:07:24.:07:26.

from rebel held territory, which Moscow disputes.

:07:27.:07:42.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will travel to Poland later today.

:07:43.:07:46.

It's part of a trip that the Foreign Office hopes

:07:47.:07:48.

will remind EU countries about the strength of their ties

:07:49.:07:51.

William and Kate will take their children Prince George

:07:52.:07:54.

and Princess Charlotte to Warsaw before going on to Germany later

:07:55.:07:57.

Here's our royal correspondent, Peter Hunt.

:07:58.:08:08.

Wimbledon wind day, Walsall the next. -- one day. For a Duke and

:08:09.:08:18.

Duchess, the pleasure of a Wimbledon final will be replaced by flying the

:08:19.:08:23.

flag in Poland. It is a visit which has already attracted attention

:08:24.:08:27.

here. This is a country which recently embraced the EU, welcoming

:08:28.:08:34.

the royal representatives of one on the way out of a royal in the

:08:35.:08:38.

tution. The monarchy will experience Poland's turbulent past, and a visit

:08:39.:08:46.

to a museum representing an unsuccessful uprising. This visit to

:08:47.:08:50.

Poland and then Germany will inevitably be seen in the context of

:08:51.:08:57.

Brexit. It will not impact the negotiations, but the government

:08:58.:09:01.

hopes their presence will show the strength of the ties once Britain

:09:02.:09:09.

has left the EU. They brought that presence to France in March and

:09:10.:09:13.

other cities in their roles as royal ambassadors for the UK. They are

:09:14.:09:23.

coming en masse. Fort George and Charlotte, such trips are a novelty.

:09:24.:09:27.

-- For. Inevitably, they will be a way of life. Peter Hunt, BBC News.

:09:28.:09:37.

It was the moment Whovians had been waiting for since Peter Capaldi

:09:38.:09:40.

announced he was relinquishing the key to the Tardis.

:09:41.:09:42.

Jodie Whittaker has been announced as the 13th Doctor.

:09:43.:09:45.

The identity of the latest incarnation of the doctor

:09:46.:09:47.

Who Time Lord was revealed in a trailer at the end

:09:48.:09:50.

Jodie is the first woman to play the character and,

:09:51.:09:55.

as you can see from this video, her announcement generated

:09:56.:09:57.

The casting has made nearly every newspaper front page this morning

:09:58.:10:13.

We will have a look at them in a minute. I will get them out. Thank

:10:14.:10:18.

you. John Tweeted to say that as a father

:10:19.:10:21.

and grandfather to girls he was pleased they would have great

:10:22.:10:24.

heroes to aspire to, Quite a few people are complaining

:10:25.:10:27.

about it as well. Michael Tweeted to say he thought

:10:28.:10:34.

the show had been ruined "for the sake of

:10:35.:10:37.

political correctness." Colin Baker, the sixth Doctor,

:10:38.:10:38.

Tweeted: "Change, my dears, She is the Doctor whether

:10:39.:10:41.

you like it or not!" I wish I could have done that in a

:10:42.:10:50.

Dr Who voice. Maybe I have one now, that is the key. I am a woman.

:10:51.:10:54.

Sorry, I was not listening. I was listening to the creator of Doctor

:10:55.:11:00.

Who, who said at a later stage, she should be metamorphosed into a

:11:01.:11:08.

woman, and she said that in 1986. We will speak later on about Dr Who and

:11:09.:11:19.

who Dr Who is. It is a lovely start to the day. It was a bit dark when

:11:20.:11:24.

we got here. Yet. Glorious. I think it is going to stay like that. Is

:11:25.:11:33.

it? Who knows? It was so dark when we got here, do you want to

:11:34.:11:43.

reveal... Yeah, my dress is on back to front. I said that with ten

:11:44.:11:51.

seconds to go. You could totally have gotten away with it. It gave me

:11:52.:11:59.

a fright. I just hope I am wearing trousers. Everyone knows now. What

:12:00.:12:07.

about Wimbledon? It is over. But what a fortnight! It is lovely to be

:12:08.:12:18.

back. Who would have known we would be talking about that man? I

:12:19.:12:22.

remember saying at the start look at how he is moving. It made the hairs

:12:23.:12:31.

on the back of your head stand up. We have the theory of people playing

:12:32.:12:34.

in the first round injured. Then people expecting Novak Djokovic,

:12:35.:12:40.

Stan Wawrinka. And then with the finals with the ladies on Saturday

:12:41.:12:45.

and then the men yesterday, it gave it a lift it needed. And Marin Cilic

:12:46.:12:52.

yesterday, he was struggling with injury. Everyone had an injury.

:12:53.:12:56.

Roger Federer had knee surgery and two months off. He got better,

:12:57.:13:03.

certainly more fit. And look what happened. He made history. The most

:13:04.:13:07.

successful male player in the history of the sport!

:13:08.:13:09.

This man, Roger Federer, the history-maker at

:13:10.:13:11.

His eighth singles title, the most successful male player

:13:12.:13:14.

But it wasn't all about him on the last day at Wimbledon.

:13:15.:13:20.

Jamie Murray and his doubles partner, the former singles

:13:21.:13:33.

champion, Martina Hingis, beat the defending champions,

:13:34.:13:35.

Britain's Heather Watson and Finland's Henri Kontinen

:13:36.:13:37.

Jordanne Whiley and her partner Yui Kamiji won their fourth

:13:38.:13:41.

successive wheelchair doubles title too!

:13:42.:13:48.

England's cricketers have an almost impossible job ahead of them,

:13:49.:13:50.

after they were set 474 to win the second test against South

:13:51.:13:54.

No team has ever scored that many to win a Test match

:13:55.:13:57.

They'll resume this morning on one without loss.

:13:58.:14:02.

My goodness, it was a busy weekend. It was! Plenty to watch! I love

:14:03.:14:14.

Wimbledon fortnight, I will really miss it. I think you should come

:14:15.:14:26.

next year. I would love to. We have a big mug. Are you allowed to

:14:27.:14:36.

mention that? It is not one of us, it is an actual big mug for

:14:37.:14:40.

Wimbledon. We should have left a camera running inside for the whole

:14:41.:14:44.

fortnight to see where it has really been. If only it could talk.

:14:45.:14:51.

Here's Matt with a look at this morning's weather,

:14:52.:14:54.

You are there for a special reason? Hull for us today.

:14:55.:15:00.

You are there for a special reason? Good morning. I certainly am, a

:15:01.:15:05.

stunning morning here but what you can see is the Humber bridge. It

:15:06.:15:10.

took 100 years of campaigning, but on this very day in 1981, the Queen

:15:11.:15:17.

officially opened this stunning structure, 1410 metres long, the

:15:18.:15:21.

world's longest suspension bridge at the time, still in the top ten to

:15:22.:15:26.

this very day and more importantly today, as part of Hull's City of

:15:27.:15:31.

Culture year it has received grade one listed status and that puts it

:15:32.:15:35.

on par with the likes of Buckingham Palace and also the House of Commons

:15:36.:15:40.

and even today it is an amazing feat of engineering. More on that through

:15:41.:15:45.

the morning. A beautiful start as you can see on the banks of the

:15:46.:15:50.

Humber but if we look at the forecast for today across the UK,

:15:51.:15:54.

it's a day in which it's not just dry, sunny, but it's also very warm

:15:55.:15:56.

as well. Pretty good start to the week for

:15:57.:16:02.

many if you're heading out this morning but one word of caution, a

:16:03.:16:06.

bit on the cool side if you're heading out in the short-term.

:16:07.:16:09.

Temperatures have dropped markedly overnight from the humid day some

:16:10.:16:14.

saw yesterday. A bit of patchy cloud in the English Channel and there's

:16:15.:16:18.

some cloud in western Scotland and the north of Scotland producing some

:16:19.:16:22.

showers and that will linger into parts Orkney and Shetland into the

:16:23.:16:26.

afternoon but the afternoon in the south is a hazy and sunny affair,

:16:27.:16:30.

strong sunshine overhead for many and temperatures will soar under a

:16:31.:16:36.

gentle breeze for the majority. Temperatures in the south could hit

:16:37.:16:43.

27 or 28. In the north we could hit 25 or 26. 25 possible to the east of

:16:44.:16:48.

Northern Ireland and in eastern parts of Scotland, always cooler in

:16:49.:16:52.

all Orkney and Shetland with more cloud and some rain and drizzle. The

:16:53.:16:59.

cloud will come and go in north-eastern Scotland. More cloud

:17:00.:17:02.

drifting to the south-west every now and again, including Wales, but for

:17:03.:17:07.

most it's a clear night and after that one day temperatures will drop

:17:08.:17:10.

a bit so another fresh Tartu tomorrow morning with patchy mist

:17:11.:17:16.

and fog. For many, like today, Tuesday will be another stunning

:17:17.:17:19.

David Ash fresh to. More cloud at times to the west of England and

:17:20.:17:25.

across Wales -- fresh start. Eastern England will be dry, sunny and warm.

:17:26.:17:29.

The same in Scotland and Northern Ireland and tomorrow it will be

:17:30.:17:32.

warmer than today, temperatures could get to the high 20s in some

:17:33.:17:37.

parts of southern England and to the bar north of Scotland we could get

:17:38.:17:43.

to 26 or 27. The Moray Firth and the north-west Highlands in particular.

:17:44.:17:46.

Like in the day big flashes of lightning in the south-west could

:17:47.:17:50.

drift towards Wales, not a huge amount of rain to begin with but

:17:51.:17:54.

into Wednesday more widespread storms into northern England and

:17:55.:17:57.

Northern Ireland and Scotland -- late in the day. Torrential

:17:58.:18:01.

downpours in places, the risk of minor flooding. England and Wales

:18:02.:18:05.

will start with more sunshine around on a very humid start but that could

:18:06.:18:09.

get together and we could see big storms developing. They will be hit

:18:10.:18:13.

and miss, difficult to say where they will be at the moment, but we

:18:14.:18:17.

could have torrential downpours as temperatures are peaking around the

:18:18.:18:22.

mid twenties. Heat and humidity swept away into Thursday. Back to

:18:23.:18:27.

fresher conditions. Still sunshine around in eastern parts but late in

:18:28.:18:31.

the day we will see rain arriving in the west. That's the weather it's a

:18:32.:18:36.

big Humber Bridge behind me. One of a number of historical buildings

:18:37.:18:42.

that get listed status today in Hull. As well as the bridge we have

:18:43.:18:47.

some really quirky Edwardian toilets in the city. Also the home of the

:18:48.:18:53.

famous poet Philip Larkin, he is one of a number of famous people from

:18:54.:18:58.

Hull who have had their homes listed, including a few architects

:18:59.:19:05.

and a person who died in a serious rail crash back in the day, which

:19:06.:19:10.

led to some increased safety features on the rails. Also the

:19:11.:19:15.

tidal storm surge barriers in Hull, which keeps this low-lying city safe

:19:16.:19:20.

from the ravages of the sea and the Humber. More on all of that through

:19:21.:19:24.

the morning on a stunning start to the day. Back to you both in

:19:25.:19:29.

Salford. Thanks very much, Matt, see you later. We will be there through

:19:30.:19:31.

the morning. Let's have a look at the papers, we

:19:32.:19:36.

tried to frighten the front pages earlier. -- to find. There she is,

:19:37.:19:44.

about time, Lord. That's the headline. Always over 50s life

:19:45.:19:53.

cover! Drops on my lap as well! This is the main story. Nurses and cops

:19:54.:20:00.

overpaid while raking in ?10,000 a month renting property, as he lives

:20:01.:20:06.

in luxury for free, about the Philip Hammond. The Doctor there with the

:20:07.:20:13.

headline. Front page of the Times, Roger Federer makes so many of the

:20:14.:20:19.

front and back pages. They are talking about fighter jets, so much

:20:20.:20:25.

money being spent on F-35 stealth aircraft but they say they might not

:20:26.:20:28.

be able to be used because things like software upgrades, spare parts

:20:29.:20:32.

and cost reduction images use have been buried in US defence contracts

:20:33.:20:37.

and they are not included in the published figures according to

:20:38.:20:40.

investigation by the Times. The Daily Mail. Doctor Who changes sex,

:20:41.:20:47.

while male TV heroes beings at? And Federer and Cilic on the front

:20:48.:20:52.

cover, Cilic in tears and Federer crying -- being zapped. Completely

:20:53.:21:01.

different on the front page of the Guardian, they are talking about

:21:02.:21:05.

Brexit being a threat to safe and stable food supplies. An interesting

:21:06.:21:10.

story about Grenfell saying stripping Grenfell style cladding

:21:11.:21:15.

could put more blocks at risk. They have talked to experts and they say

:21:16.:21:19.

the installation is more dangerous than the cladding that covers it.

:21:20.:21:25.

What have we got? It isn't often that Winnie the Pooh gets on the

:21:26.:21:29.

front of the Financial Times. I wonder if that has ever happened

:21:30.:21:34.

before. I would say not but Beijing has blocked Winnie the Pooh images

:21:35.:21:38.

China has taken them down from social media. No official reason has

:21:39.:21:46.

been given. Not wearing any pants? That seems all right, but observers

:21:47.:21:51.

have suggested it was related to previous comparisons of President

:21:52.:21:56.

gee pin the portly teddy bear. There's images we can see of

:21:57.:22:02.

President Xi Jingping with President Obama -- comparisons of President Xi

:22:03.:22:06.

Jingping. It goes to show, we have talked before about Twitter and

:22:07.:22:11.

Google trying to break China, that's why it's a bit harder because you

:22:12.:22:14.

can't put anything you want up. What an interesting story! You surely

:22:15.:22:19.

couldn't find anything wrong with Winnie the Pooh! There is a page six

:22:20.:22:24.

article on it in the FT as well, so they have gone big on Winnie the

:22:25.:22:28.

Pooh in the FT. I didn't know that Winnie the Pooh doesn't wear pants,

:22:29.:22:32.

I've never noticed! You're really observant! I have never really

:22:33.:22:38.

noticed! Shall we move on? The back page of the Times, this is Roger

:22:39.:22:43.

Federer, you can't argue, this morning it's all about that man. To

:22:44.:22:47.

put it into context, in his career there is a 4.5 year gap where he

:22:48.:22:52.

didn't win a grand slam title at all. Backpages all saying the same

:22:53.:22:58.

thing. Roger Federer with the trophy yesterday. Back page of the racing

:22:59.:23:02.

Post, Roger Federer 11 to four favourite to make it nine next year.

:23:03.:23:08.

I know we will talk about this later but a blister is what happens to

:23:09.:23:13.

Marin Cilic, a very serious problem caused by something quite innocuous.

:23:14.:23:17.

On the sole of his foot under his left foot. It had been drained quite

:23:18.:23:22.

a few times. The day before they try to scrape it off. Did he wear the

:23:23.:23:29.

wrong socks? Who knows! It's because he had a five set semi-final and he

:23:30.:23:32.

was turning direction too much and you need to wear two pairs of socks

:23:33.:23:37.

but it gives you extra rubbing. Amazing, cost him the final!

:23:38.:23:43.

Probably not very nice images for breakfast, apologies. It sounds

:23:44.:23:47.

weak, doesn't it, it can be like a cold! I'm not kidding, he had a

:23:48.:23:57.

cold, Federer, for the two weeks. Are you one of those people were

:23:58.:24:01.

Federer can do no wrong? I wasn't, but I have become one of those

:24:02.:24:03.

people. It's more than 1,000 years

:24:04.:24:05.

since the lynx became extinct in the UK but campaigners hope

:24:06.:24:08.

a decision later today An application being considered

:24:09.:24:11.

by Natural England could see them released into Kielder Forest

:24:12.:24:19.

in Northumberland, but the return of a major predator

:24:20.:24:22.

is worrying farmers. Breakfast's Graham

:24:23.:24:24.

Satchell reports. The last lynx in Britain was killed

:24:25.:24:32.

for its further 1500 years ago. The application going into Natural

:24:33.:24:35.

England today would see them return. Between six and ten wild lynx

:24:36.:24:41.

released into Kielder Forest in Northumberland. This is a huge

:24:42.:24:44.

conservation milestone. This is the first licence ever submitted to

:24:45.:24:48.

reintroduce lynx on a trial basis into the UK. This is a life-sized

:24:49.:24:54.

cutout of a lynx, so that's how big a real lynx is, so they aren't that

:24:55.:24:59.

big... Paul Donahue from the lynx trust has been doing a consultation,

:25:00.:25:02.

talking, listening and explaining and the children at Kielder School

:25:03.:25:08.

have big questions. Are lynx dangerous to people? Lynx live all

:25:09.:25:13.

over the world and in human history a healthy wild lynx has never

:25:14.:25:17.

attacked a human anywhere in the world. There's a genuine excitement

:25:18.:25:22.

here and enthusiasm for the return of a wildcat. They do look really

:25:23.:25:27.

nice and it's good that they don't hurt any people or anything. They

:25:28.:25:33.

might not hurt people but lynx are expert hunters. Their main prey,

:25:34.:25:40.

dear. Deer eat out the understory, they overgrazed and if you see now

:25:41.:25:44.

there's very little under story around so there's not really many

:25:45.:25:47.

places for small mammals and birds to nest and lynx are needed to

:25:48.:25:55.

balance the ecosystem. Not according to sheep farmers, who said deer are

:25:56.:26:01.

not a problem and lynx would be a threat. I think it's absolutely a

:26:02.:26:07.

stupid idea for a predator that's not been in this country for 1000

:26:08.:26:12.

years to be released where it's going to cause damage to viable

:26:13.:26:17.

business. As far as I'm concerned, the links will go for the easy

:26:18.:26:22.

target, which is going to be sheep and lamb -- lynx.

:26:23.:26:26.

Farmers would be compensated for any livestock lost, but they are

:26:27.:26:29.

strongly against the issuing of a licence. There's got to be a legal

:26:30.:26:34.

case taken against them because to release a dangerous animal onto

:26:35.:26:38.

private land, that can't possibly be right. Annual fight them? Yes,

:26:39.:26:45.

definitely. -- and you'll. Opinion here is divided. In the local pub,

:26:46.:26:49.

Mike Brown is thinking about his business. One estimate suggests the

:26:50.:26:54.

lynx could bring around ?30 million a year in extra tourist revenue. We

:26:55.:27:00.

need as many tourists as we can get, it's the most remote forest

:27:01.:27:04.

immigrant, we rely on tourist trade, that's 99% of the trade we take --

:27:05.:27:09.

in England. Will Kielder Forest become the land of the lynx? The

:27:10.:27:13.

decision is now in the hands of Natural England but if they say yes,

:27:14.:27:16.

experts predict there could eventually be as many as 400 lynx in

:27:17.:27:22.

forests around the UK. Graham Satchell, BBC News, Kielder Forest.

:27:23.:27:26.

Whatever you think, they are beautiful animals.

:27:27.:27:29.

Time now to get the news, travel and weather where you are.

:27:30.:30:52.

Now, though, it's back to Louise and Dan.

:30:53.:30:54.

This is Breakfast, with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin.

:30:55.:31:08.

We'll bring you all the latest news and sport in a moment,

:31:09.:31:11.

It's three years today since MH17 was shot down over Ukraine.

:31:12.:31:21.

We'll be joined by a close relative of one of those who died,

:31:22.:31:24.

who says more needs to be done to bring those

:31:25.:31:27.

Our love of certain dog breeds has led to more "puppy farms" operating

:31:28.:31:31.

We'll be asking how to make sure you're buying a happy,

If you're watching, let us know what you think.

:31:55.:31:58.

But now a summary of this morning's main news.

:31:59.:32:00.

The final route for the controversial HS2 rail line

:32:01.:32:03.

north of Birmingham will be announced today,

:32:04.:32:05.

There's also more detail on who has been awarded contracts worth nearly

:32:06.:32:09.

?7 billion to work on the first stretch of the line,

:32:10.:32:12.

and information on around 16,000 jobs.

:32:13.:32:16.

The scheme has drawn controversy from campaigners who say it will

:32:17.:32:25.

only benefit the richest of society, though the Transport Secretary says

:32:26.:32:30.

it will drive productivity in both the north and the Midlands.

:32:31.:32:32.

A terminally ill man will today begin a legal challenge to overturn

:32:33.:32:36.

Noel Conway, who has motor neurone disease,

:32:37.:32:39.

wants to change the law in England and Wales so a doctor is allowed

:32:40.:32:43.

to help him die when his health deteriorates.

:32:44.:32:45.

Under the current law, any doctor who helped him would face

:32:46.:32:48.

Opponents say the change would put vulnerable people at risk.

:32:49.:32:56.

The Brexit Secretary, David Davis, has called for both sides to "get

:32:57.:32:59.

down to business" this morning as the next round of negotiating

:33:00.:33:02.

Mr Davis is meeting the European Commission's chief

:33:03.:33:05.

Key issues will include the future rights of EU citizens in the UK

:33:06.:33:10.

and British citizens living in other member states.

:33:11.:33:18.

The after affects of the heatwave in Europe last week continue

:33:19.:33:21.

Fires have broken out in different corners of the continent.

:33:22.:33:25.

Firefighters tackled blazes on the Croatian coast,

:33:26.:33:26.

Scrubland in the mountains of Genoa, Italy, also set alight with ten

:33:27.:33:31.

And a fire in the north of Portugal, which had been declared

:33:32.:33:36.

as contained, spread once more, sending residents running.

:33:37.:33:53.

The Duchess of Cornwall turns 70 today, and Clarence House have

:33:54.:34:01.

marked the occasion by releasing a new official portrait.

:34:02.:34:04.

The picture shows Camilla with the Prince of Wales

:34:05.:34:08.

in the morning room of their London home.

:34:09.:34:10.

It was taken by Mario Testino, who first photographed the couple

:34:11.:34:13.

on their first wedding anniversary in 2006.

:34:14.:34:15.

Are we are having problems with Italian names? I think I changed

:34:16.:34:28.

their sex. Very Dr Whovian. We will talk about Dr Who soon. We will talk

:34:29.:34:39.

about it with an actor who plays a companion in the radio version. It

:34:40.:34:42.

has caused a lot of discussion. Some people are upset. Some have said

:34:43.:34:47.

they will not watch it again. It is a fictional character. And then they

:34:48.:34:52.

say they don't even watch it anyway. It makes no sense! Are going to...

:34:53.:34:58.

Can we talk about tennis? Will the talk about the mug in the room? Can

:34:59.:35:06.

I get a shot of it? Will let ruin everything for everybody? It is so

:35:07.:35:12.

obvious... There his. Look at the size of it! It is normal size, it is

:35:13.:35:23.

just perspective. Everyone just had a heart attack. First we will speak

:35:24.:35:44.

about Roger... Rogerina? I'm trying to think of the female version. Rog.

:35:45.:35:48.

I know you were laughing about me thinking he can do no wrong.

:35:49.:35:52.

Basically, he can't! He had a few setbacks. Yes. He did not even need

:35:53.:35:54.

to break a sweat! Yes, Roger Federer is the Wimbledon

:35:55.:35:57.

champion for a record eighth time and he did it without really needing

:35:58.:36:01.

to break sweat against Maric Cilic. Federer won in straight sets

:36:02.:36:04.

in just one hour 41 minutes The Swiss is the first man

:36:05.:36:07.

since Bjorn Borg to win the title without dropping a set

:36:08.:36:12.

throughout the tournament. I was not sure if I was ever going

:36:13.:36:18.

to be here again in another finals after last year. I had some tough

:36:19.:36:22.

ones, losing to Novak Djokovic in 2014 and 2015. But I always thought

:36:23.:36:26.

I could maybe do it again. If you really believe you can go far enough

:36:27.:36:29.

in your life, you can. I kept dreaming and believing, and here I

:36:30.:36:31.

am. It is fantastic. It was emotional, wasn't it? Marin

:36:32.:36:37.

Cilic was crying. He had a good reason. He had developed a blister

:36:38.:36:44.

on the sole of his left foot which was so grim that they had spent

:36:45.:36:48.

Friday, his team spent Friday, working on it. He had a doctor with

:36:49.:36:55.

him for six hours. It sounded horrible. Draining it. Packing it.

:36:56.:37:01.

Trying to work out whether any painkiller could help it. But if you

:37:02.:37:05.

have something wrong with your foot, you go on a big walk and have a

:37:06.:37:11.

blister, you cannot go on. He had tears and sadness and frustration.

:37:12.:37:15.

To get to that point and sit there with everyone watching at that

:37:16.:37:18.

moment in your career. You cannot play your best tennis. And blister

:37:19.:37:25.

sounds weak and feeble. But if you speak to someone who has been

:37:26.:37:29.

through it, they say once it gets deep... Stop! Yes, it is agony. You

:37:30.:37:38.

have to feel for him. But, you know, he will be back. He got all the way

:37:39.:37:43.

there. But that needs to steal. As you said, he was crying, Roger

:37:44.:37:48.

Federer was crying for a different reason. His twins were misbehaving.

:37:49.:37:55.

That was glorious. More on that later. And now for other news.

:37:56.:37:57.

And the last day of Wimbledon wasn't without some British success.

:37:58.:38:00.

Jamie Murray and former singles champion Martina Hingis beat

:38:01.:38:03.

the defending champions, Britain's Heather Watson

:38:04.:38:04.

and Finland's Henri Kontinen in straight sets.

:38:05.:38:07.

Really happy that I contacted Jamie for playing together. Pretty much my

:38:08.:38:12.

dream came true to give ourselves a good chance to win the title, and we

:38:13.:38:16.

did the blue it was a great two weeks for us, we played great

:38:17.:38:21.

tennis. Excited to win. It was a huge achievement for us.

:38:22.:38:22.

And Jamie Murray wasn't the only British winner.

:38:23.:38:24.

Jordanne Whiley and her Japanese partner Yui Kamiji have

:38:25.:38:27.

won their fourth successive women's wheelchairs doubles title.

:38:28.:38:32.

It is great Jamie Murray and her were playing only at the start. See

:38:33.:38:42.

texted him and said do you fancy a game? He did not check his phone and

:38:43.:38:49.

she started to panic. It worked out in the end.

:38:50.:38:53.

Great Britain's Jonnie Peacock has won gold in the Men's 100m T44

:38:54.:38:57.

to become the eighth British gold-medallist of the 2017

:38:58.:38:59.

Peacock's winning time was 10.75 seconds inside the London Stadium,

:39:00.:39:03.

it was actually slower than his heat-winning

:39:04.:39:05.

Britain also picked up a bronze through Maria Lyle in the Women's

:39:06.:39:09.

I knew I was in good form, but at the end of the day, when it comes to

:39:10.:39:16.

the final, I don't care about times. It is a great cherry on top of the

:39:17.:39:22.

icing, but metals are what I can keep forever and what I can look

:39:23.:39:24.

back on. -- medals. And there's been more British

:39:25.:39:27.

success this weekend. Lewis Hamilton won

:39:28.:39:29.

the British Grand Prix The historic victory

:39:30.:39:31.

moves him to within a point of Sebastien Vettel at the half way

:39:32.:39:35.

stage of the Formula One season. That, after the Championship Leader

:39:36.:39:38.

suffered a dramatic late puncture. Crowd-surfing. I love it. It feels

:39:39.:39:48.

amazing to be out here. I am so proud to see all of these flags. The

:39:49.:39:54.

support has been immense. I am proud I could do this for you. Thank you

:39:55.:39:58.

for the support and pushing us. The team was faultless. It was an

:39:59.:40:02.

exceptional job. The perfect weekend for us. They always get the best

:40:03.:40:12.

people to do those interviews. That was Owen Wilson, Hollywood filmstar.

:40:13.:40:14.

England's cricketers need to produce an heroic effort if they're to avoid

:40:15.:40:18.

defeat, when the second test against South Africa

:40:19.:40:20.

The tourists are firmly in control after setting England a target

:40:21.:40:24.

Englands reply got off to a nervous start when Alastair Cook was given

:40:25.:40:29.

That decision was eventually overturned but England face

:40:30.:40:32.

an uphull task to stop South Africa levelling the series.

:40:33.:40:35.

We did not play very well at all, but we have the opportunity to bat

:40:36.:40:41.

well for the next two days and see what we can do. You cannot rule it

:40:42.:40:45.

out as well, with the players we have. And the wickets are still

:40:46.:40:53.

pretty good. We have played spin pretty well in the past.

:40:54.:40:55.

Britain's defending champion Chris Froome overcame mechanical

:40:56.:40:57.

issues to retain his 18-second lead after stage 15 of the Tour de

:40:58.:41:01.

He had to change a wheel, and deal with the hostile,

:41:02.:41:04.

booing, home fans, but he recovered brilliantly, holding

:41:05.:41:06.

And he'll get to put his feet up today as it's a rest day.

:41:07.:41:18.

30 seconds between the top four. Terrifying. There was a moment

:41:19.:41:25.

yesterday when we thought he would lose the lead. I don't know how he

:41:26.:41:31.

hung on to it. We will have to wait a couple of days to start talking

:41:32.:41:35.

about it. You need to explain what this is. The big moment. My

:41:36.:41:41.

favourite prop for summer. You have seen everyone have a go at this.

:41:42.:41:46.

Will you have a go as blue a little one. Would you like a ball? Thank

:41:47.:41:57.

you. Woah, woah, woah. Who is going to go first? Overarm. Over. Come on,

:41:58.:42:16.

Sal. Come on, Sal. Lethal leftie. Your aim wasn't much better. Awful!

:42:17.:42:23.

Seriously. I am going to have to practise. Another go at that later.

:42:24.:42:34.

Maybe we need a slightly bigger... Maybe a football or something. And

:42:35.:42:40.

now we are at Humber Bridge, which has been given listed status. Where

:42:41.:42:48.

are you? Good morning. I am on the banks at the moment. A stunning shot

:42:49.:42:55.

of the Humber Bridge. The first plans for crossing it were back in

:42:56.:43:04.

1870. They wanted a tunnel, but after 100 years of campaigning and

:43:05.:43:09.

eight years of construction as well, the Humber Bridge now takes over 8

:43:10.:43:14.

million journeys each year. And, of course, as you have mentioned, today

:43:15.:43:20.

is a special day. It is not only the 36th anniversary of its opening, but

:43:21.:43:25.

it has received listed status. Blue skies. Not just on the banks of the

:43:26.:43:32.

Humber, but also for the UK. A sunny day in store. A warm one as well.

:43:33.:43:38.

Especially after a cool start. Blue skies for many first thing this

:43:39.:43:42.

morning. Patchy cloud in the English Channel, mainly to the south-west of

:43:43.:43:46.

England. And also in the north and north-west of Scotland. The cloud in

:43:47.:43:50.

the north-west may threaten show us this morning. Shetland, Orkney,

:43:51.:43:55.

showers continuing. A dry day. Quickly warming up as well under

:43:56.:43:59.

strong sunshine. Temperatures quite widely could be seen hitting the low

:44:00.:44:03.

20s. More cloud towards the south-west of the country compared

:44:04.:44:08.

to much of England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland to the temperatures

:44:09.:44:12.

today will be likely in the east of England, 27 degrees is possible.

:44:13.:44:18.

Including near Hull. And in eastern Ireland and Scotland, 35 degrees is

:44:19.:44:23.

possible. Always more cool for the far north and west of Scotland.

:44:24.:44:27.

Getting cloudy in Orkney and Shetland. Mid-afternoon, the showers

:44:28.:44:32.

should clear. The cloud will be here in the finals of Scotland. Also,

:44:33.:44:38.

some in the far south and west of the country. Clear skies. Patchy

:44:39.:44:44.

mist and fog. Again, a clear and fresh night coming after a warm day.

:44:45.:44:49.

Temperatures dropping after the sun sets. A fresh start tomorrow

:44:50.:44:57.

morning. A warm day. Still some good sunny spells. Most of us will the

:44:58.:45:02.

sunshine. A bit of a breeze to the south and east. That means some of

:45:03.:45:08.

the warmest weather in the north and west tomorrow. South-east Wales,

:45:09.:45:10.

south-east parts of the Midlands, temperatures getting to 29 degrees.

:45:11.:45:14.

Even in the north and north-west of Scotland, we could get to 27

:45:15.:45:18.

degrees. Storms pushing into the south-west by the end of the day.

:45:19.:45:21.

Lightning storms initially into Wednesday that the torrential

:45:22.:45:26.

downpours. Northern England and Ireland. Wales sees some sunshine.

:45:27.:45:33.

Through the day, heat and humidity reaching 31 degrees across eastern

:45:34.:45:38.

England, which could be enough to that of some localised severe

:45:39.:45:43.

storms. A bit difficult to see where the weather will be. Kit tuned to

:45:44.:45:47.

the forecast. All of it will be swept out on Thursday. A bright day

:45:48.:45:52.

for many on Thursday by feeling more fresh before rain arrives in

:45:53.:45:56.

Northern Ireland later. That is how the weather is looking. As you can

:45:57.:46:05.

see, the Humber is looking stunning, along with the bridge. It is not

:46:06.:46:09.

just the bridge, but eight other localities have listed status in the

:46:10.:46:14.

city, including some pretty Edwardian toilets. And the storm

:46:15.:46:20.

surge barrier as well in Hull which protects this low-lying area from

:46:21.:46:29.

severe surges and the Humber and the North Sea as well. That is how it is

:46:30.:46:33.

looking here on the banks of the Humber.

:46:34.:46:38.

Good to see an Edwardian toddler awarded as well, about time!

:46:39.:46:42.

People who enter competitions online could be putting themselves

:46:43.:46:44.

You see lots of them, on the back of things in supermarkets or online or

:46:45.:47:00.

on newspapers, some people make a living out of them if you're really

:47:01.:47:02.

good but we aren't all that wise! The prizes offered by the some

:47:03.:47:05.

online competitions can That's backed-up by a survey from

:47:06.:47:07.

the Nationwide Building Society, which says that around two thirds

:47:08.:47:11.

of people who enter them are putting That's because people are sending

:47:12.:47:15.

off things like their name, address and date of birth

:47:16.:47:19.

without checking first if the deal Let's talk to Emily Orton,

:47:20.:47:22.

who's the director of cyber security The research says we are aware of

:47:23.:47:43.

these risks but when it comes to these competitions we are giving

:47:44.:47:46.

away our details, why are we more casual? We are used to giving out

:47:47.:47:52.

personal data in this day and age, especially young people, so lots of

:47:53.:47:59.

the time it is social media things like date of birth, where we live,

:48:00.:48:03.

where we studied, so it's not a big leap to enter a competition where we

:48:04.:48:08.

think the upside could be something like a holiday or vouchers. 18 to 24

:48:09.:48:14.

-year-olds are more likely to dish out this information, is it because

:48:15.:48:21.

there's rarely big consequences for giving out your details? I would say

:48:22.:48:25.

that consumers or individuals are less of a target and a large

:48:26.:48:30.

organisation, we've seen many big cyber attacks against large

:48:31.:48:33.

organisations who have huge datasets and much more to lose in many ways.

I think the injury to all doesn't he'll the immediacy of that risk. --

that decision to run the risk for the upside. When it comes to

checking, nationwide advises if it looks too good to be true then it

might be but it's a competition and the point is it's meant to be too

:49:00.:49:03.

good to be true -- Nationwide. Is there anything you can do to be sure

:49:04.:49:07.

that the company you're dealing with is verified? There are basics that

:49:08.:49:12.

go a long way, the first thing is this a reputable organisation? Check

:49:13.:49:17.

the website, is there a padlock, can you see... Just next to the website

:49:18.:49:24.

in the browser? Yes, that will help because it says we have certified

:49:25.:49:27.

the organisation is who they say they are. Things like questioning

:49:28.:49:32.

whether they really need your date of birth, what was the purpose of

:49:33.:49:36.

them collecting it. Sometimes there's an Asterix that you need the

:49:37.:49:41.

info and sometimes you don't need to put it all in? That's right, often

:49:42.:49:46.

you would expect that, there's a big drive to collect marketing data and

:49:47.:49:50.

you don't need to put it in. If there's a website that requires you

:49:51.:49:54.

to enter a lot of data, you need think twice. Emily, thanks very

:49:55.:50:00.

much. There we go. A bit of advice to keep on top of this. If you want

:50:01.:50:06.

to get into this, holidays of a lifetime, check the padlock at the

:50:07.:50:10.

top and don't have to fill in all the boxes, that's about it!

:50:11.:50:12.

It is not often a television show casting announcement holds the front

:50:13.:50:15.

pages, generates thousands of column inches and inspires such strong

:50:16.:50:18.

Jodie Whittaker on the front page of the Telegraph and the Mirror and

:50:19.:50:32.

most of the papers this morning and a question on the Daily Telegraph,

:50:33.:50:37.

nice to meet Who. She is the new Doctor!

:50:38.:50:38.

However, the revelation the 13th Time Lord is to be played by a woman

:50:39.:50:42.

We will be getting the thoughts of a doctor Who actress in a moment,

:50:43.:50:47.

but first a reminder of how Jodie Whittaker was unveiled

:50:48.:50:50.

and the reaction of some Breakfast viewers.

:50:51.:51:06.

That looks like a woman's feet, small feet. I wouldn't be surprised

:51:07.:51:11.

if it was a woman. It is a woman! Oh my god, they've got a girl! It's

:51:12.:51:26.

a woman! Oh my god! It's a woman! The

:51:27.:51:38.

Doctor... I might cry. It's a woman, I cannot believe it, they did it.

:51:39.:51:44.

I'm shocked still! What a good choice. For me as a girl, this is

:51:45.:51:48.

something I never thought possible ever. There are always doubts when

:51:49.:51:53.

there's a new Doctor and if it's a brilliant actor, because it's a

:51:54.:51:57.

brilliant part, if it's a brilliant actor and Jodie Whittaker is a

:51:58.:52:01.

brilliant actor then it's all going to be fine but what's interesting is

:52:02.:52:03.

it's going to be very different. Let's speak now to the actor

:52:04.:52:11.

Lisa Bowerman, who plays Professor Bernice Summerfield

:52:12.:52:17.

in the Doctor Who audio plays. Good morning, good morning! I'm

:52:18.:52:25.

guessing your reaction by the smile on your face is your pretty happy

:52:26.:52:30.

about this? It's an extremely good decision. It's been so fascinating

:52:31.:52:34.

this morning, the papers are covered with it. I was in the car on the way

:52:35.:52:41.

this morning and it was all over the radio, the reaction has been

:52:42.:52:44.

extraordinary and it's an extremely good thing. The bottom line is, I

:52:45.:52:48.

heard a bit in the clips you just played, it's a brilliant piece of

:52:49.:52:53.

casting, Jodie Whittaker is a fantastic actress and I think that

:52:54.:52:58.

can only bode well. On having a problem with my microphone, sorry, I

:52:59.:53:02.

hope you can still hear me. It's my problem, not yours! She said

:53:03.:53:14.

herself," I want to tell fans not to be scared by my agenda", but there's

:53:15.:53:19.

been a big reaction to this, hasn't their? It's interesting, because of

:53:20.:53:24.

all the roles that have been played by women recently, I saw Glenda

:53:25.:53:28.

Jackson playing King Lear last year, Maxine Peak played Hamlet recently,

:53:29.:53:34.

of all the parts the Doctor is one that can easily be played by a

:53:35.:53:39.

woman. After all it is a fantasy show, an alien with two hearts who

:53:40.:53:43.

floats around space in a 1960s telephone box. To actually think

:53:44.:53:52.

that somebody... Actually, let's face it, the Doctor is an alien who

:53:53.:53:56.

met or is every few years, there's no reason why the Doctor, which is a

:53:57.:54:02.

generic title, let's be honest, it could be a woman or a man, couldn't

:54:03.:54:06.

transport themselves, couldn't transpose themselves into a woman. I

:54:07.:54:12.

think when it comes to Doctor Who, it's always reflected these are

:54:13.:54:17.

guys, the age that it's been produced in and I think it was right

:54:18.:54:22.

for this particular change -- Zeitgeist. I've been a fan for many

:54:23.:54:28.

years and each of the actors who plays the Doctor, they make it their

:54:29.:54:33.

own, which seems like such an extraordinarily brilliant thing to

:54:34.:54:39.

do in some ways. I know. You talk about all the different

:54:40.:54:41.

interpretations, we've had everything from old men, Jon Pertwee

:54:42.:54:46.

with a bouffant hairstyle and a frilly shirt, they very much reflect

:54:47.:54:51.

the age in which they were produced. Interestingly I think I've heard a

:54:52.:54:56.

lot of responses from fans who are extremely worried, I'm never going

:54:57.:55:00.

to watch it again, but we should trust the producer, Chris Jade

:55:01.:55:06.

North, not to put Jodie Whittaker in a pair of stilettos running in a

:55:07.:55:12.

field handing the sonic screwdriver to a companion and saying you deal

:55:13.:55:17.

with it. I think the Doctor will always have that character. I think

:55:18.:55:22.

the character of the Doctor won't disappear. The Doctor has always had

:55:23.:55:29.

the moral high ground. I say he, the Doctor, is not an action hero. He

:55:30.:55:35.

isn't someone who throws people around with the strength of his

:55:36.:55:39.

muscles, it actually doesn't matter whether the Doctor is a man or a

:55:40.:55:44.

woman because that essential goodness, that essential fighting

:55:45.:55:47.

for the outsider I think we'll probably still be there. Let's leave

:55:48.:55:52.

it with that thought, that essential goodness. Thanks for your time on

:55:53.:55:56.

Breakfast this morning. Get in touch with us to let us know what you

:55:57.:55:59.

think about the appointment of Jodie Whittaker as the next Doctor Who,

:56:00.:56:01.

she coats over at Christmas. Now, though, it's back

:56:02.:59:24.

to Louise and Dan. This is Breakfast, with Dan Walker

between Birmingham and London The final routes for extensions

:59:42.:59:43.

to Leeds and Manchester Good morning. We have just got the

:59:44.:59:59.

names of the companies that will build this project. I will have more

:00:00.:00:01.

on that shortly. In sport, the "King

:00:02.:00:14.

of Centre Court" does it again. A record eighth Wimbledon

:00:15.:00:24.

title for Roger Federer, as he beats Marin Cilic

:00:25.:00:26.

in straight sets. The first man ever to achieve that.

And he is already favourite for next year.

1,000 years after the lynx became extinct in the UK,

:00:38.:00:40.

the authorities consider a plan to reintroduce them in Northern

:00:41.:00:42.

There's been plenty of reaction like that to the revelation that

:00:43.:00:54.

Jodie Whittaker will take the title role in the next series of Doctor

:00:55.:00:58.

We'll be hearing from fans and critics.

The Humber Bridge becomes a listed building.

:01:01.:01:08.

The banks of the Humber. The weather. Thank you. Good morning. It

:01:09.:01:18.

was 36 years ago today the bridge was officially opened. Today it

:01:19.:01:22.

joins the likes of Buckingham Palace and the House of Commons in

:01:23.:01:34.

receiving Grade One listed status. Plenty of sunshine in the weather.

:01:35.:01:39.

Will it last? More on that in 15 minutes. Thank you.

Details of 16,000 jobs are being revealed this morning

:01:43.:01:47.

as the first major contracts to build the HS2 rail

:01:48.:01:49.

The high-speed line between Birmingham and London

:01:50.:01:52.

Later this afternoon, the routes for extensions to Leeds

:01:53.:01:56.

and Manchester will also be announced.

:01:57.:01:58.

Our business correspondent, Joe Lynam, has more.

:01:59.:02:01.

It's Britain's biggest investment ever in public transport.

:02:02.:02:03.

HighSpeed2 is designed to cut journey times and increase

:02:04.:02:06.

the number of passenger seats between London

:02:07.:02:07.

It's been six years in the planning but now the first

:02:08.:02:12.

construction contracts have been signed, and they're worth ?6.6

:02:13.:02:14.

billion, which the government says will support 16,000 jobs

:02:15.:02:17.

The first trains aren't expected to run, though,

:02:18.:02:20.

until 2026, by which time they hope to carry 300,000 passengers per day.

:02:21.:02:35.

?50 billion on a track of this nature...

:02:36.:02:37.

The Stop HS2 Campaign in the Chiltern says it will only

:02:38.:02:41.

benefit the richest in society and the corporations who build it.

:02:42.:02:44.

And reports on the weekend said HS2 could end up as the most expensive

:02:45.:02:48.

Even so, the muddy work of spades in the ground begins next year

:02:49.:02:55.

for what the government calls "The backbone

:02:56.:02:57.

Let's get more on this story with Sean.

:02:58.:03:19.

Many of those 16,000 jobs will be working for a lot of British

:03:20.:03:33.

companies, though some foreign ones. People don't know the breakdown of

:03:34.:03:37.

how much muggy is going to how many areas just yet. Last week, this

:03:38.:03:44.

business has had their shares fall by 16%. They have given money to

:03:45.:03:52.

others to look after this project. This could be seen as a lifeline for

:03:53.:03:56.

them. A contract they needed to win. There are many question marks after

:03:57.:04:02.

last week. What is important is that it is under way, it seems. Some of

:04:03.:04:07.

our preliminary work will begin next year. Many jobs. But those residents

:04:08.:04:16.

will be wondering about those route changes. It could affect many people

:04:17.:04:21.

in their homes. We will find out more about that this morning. Thank

:04:22.:04:25.

you so much. We will talk to you more about that.

:04:26.:04:27.

The case of a terminally ill man who wants to change the law

settlement from the UK. Adam Fleming is outside the

:06:40.:06:44.

commission. What will be on the agenda? Anything different? Last

:06:45.:06:47.

time these two men met it was the talk about acting all things, like

:06:48.:06:50.

the timetable of things going forward. This is their first chance

:06:51.:06:53.

to talk about clarifying each side's position. Both sides have released a

:06:54.:06:58.

flurry of papers. They will be asking questions about what they

:06:59.:07:02.

actually mean to be the big issues on the table at the moment, David

:07:03.:07:06.

Davis says his priority is the rights of citizens. What will happen

:07:29.:07:34.

That will not be due until the future. A thorny issue. Everyone

:07:35.:07:39.

here is obsessed about what is happening back home. How long we'll

:07:40.:07:45.

Theresa May remain Prime Minister? -- will. And are ministers

period? Thank you for that. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge

:07:57.:08:11.

will travel to Poland later today. It's part of a trip

:08:12.:08:15.

that the Foreign Office hopes will remind EU countries

:08:16.:08:17.

about the strength of their ties William and Kate will take

:08:18.:08:20.

before going on to Germany later Here's our royal

correspondent, Peter Hunt. For a Duke and Duchess,

:08:27.:08:29.

the pleasure of a Wimbledon final will be replaced by flying

:08:30.:08:34.

the flag in Poland. It's a visit that's already

:08:35.:08:36.

attracted attention here. This is a country that relatively

:08:37.:08:39.

recently embraced the EU, welcoming the royal representatives

:08:40.:08:42.

of one on the way out of a royal The monarchy will experience

:08:43.:08:45.

Germany will inevitably be seen It won't obviously have any impact

:08:53.:08:56.

on the negotiations, but the government hopes

:08:57.:09:02.

their presence will show the strength of the ties once

:09:03.:09:05.

Britain has left the EU. They brought that presence to France

:09:06.:09:10.

in March and other cities in their roles as royal

:09:11.:09:15.

ambassadors for the UK. As in Canada last year,

:09:16.:09:23.

the Cambridges are coming en masse. For George and Charlotte,

:09:24.:09:26.

such trips are a novelty. Eventually, they will

:09:27.:09:29.

be a way of life. We are going back to a main story.

:09:30.:09:44.

One of the most controversial debates about time.

:09:45.:09:48.

Should we be able to choose when and where we die

:09:49.:09:53.

if we are suffering from a terminal and debilitating illness?

:09:54.:09:55.

Noel Conway has Motor Neurone Disease and wants to change the law

:09:56.:09:59.

in England and Wales so anyone who helps him end his life

:10:00.:10:02.

His case returns to court today and we will debate it in a moment.

:10:03.:10:07.

First, here is Noel's story in his own words.

:10:08.:10:09.

I do not want to die very slowly of suffocation and being semiconscious

:10:10.:10:15.

until I am in a condition where I don't even know what is going on.

:10:16.:10:19.

That is called... For some people, they say that is good palliative

:10:20.:10:27.

care. But I am sorry, that is not an acceptable option for me. They

:10:28.:10:30.

cannot tell me how long it will take. None of them can. It could be

:10:31.:10:34.

days, it could be weeks, it could be even longer. I... I... I am going to

:10:35.:10:44.

be left in a situation at some stage when I can face that amount of

:10:45.:10:50.

suffering, actually being locked in my own body, or are facing a slow,

:10:51.:11:01.

suffocating death, drifting off slowly into unconsciousness. Why

:11:02.:11:07.

should I have to do that? I know I am going to die.

:11:08.:11:09.

Tony Bonser volunteers at a hospice, is a former trustee

:11:10.:11:13.

for the National Council for Palliative Care and opposes any

:11:14.:11:16.

Mick Murray on the other hand is a campaigner

:11:17.:11:19.

I am sure this is a conversation many people having listened to you

:11:20.:11:28.

this morning will be having themselves. We will start with you.

:11:29.:11:34.

Why are you opposed to changes in the law? First of all, I am

:11:35.:11:37.

immensely moved by that story and that extract we have seen. It is not

:11:38.:11:43.

the first such example. I don't know how people cope in that situation,

:11:44.:11:47.

and I don't know how his wife, his partner, manages in that situation

:11:48.:11:53.

either. I would, as you know, I work for a local hospice, I deal with a

:11:54.:11:58.

lot of people near the end of their lives. I find that people tend to be

:11:59.:12:04.

vulnerable, able to be persuade. When I was with the national council

:12:05.:12:08.

for palliative care, we did research showing how people are concerned

:12:09.:12:13.

about not being of use, a bother, being a burden to their families. I

:12:14.:12:18.

am concerned at a time when they are vulnerable, although they have

:12:19.:12:23.

mental capacity, they are able to be persuaded. I think the problem is

:12:24.:12:30.

creating a law allowing people like Noel to have his wish, to end his

:12:31.:12:36.

life with dignity, safeguarding the rights of people vulnerable. Let us

:12:37.:12:43.

put that to you. You are on the other side of the fence. And that

:12:44.:12:46.

point about vulnerable people being brought in difficult positions. What

:12:47.:12:51.

is your response to that? The campaign is arguing that for a

:12:52.:12:56.

number of checks and balances to be put in place to stop that happening,

:12:57.:13:02.

primarily, two doctors should determine mental capacity, they

:13:03.:13:07.

should also determine it is a terminal illness. And finally, a

:13:08.:13:14.

High Court judge, a judge in a family court, they should determine

:13:15.:13:19.

there is no pressure, it is a freely made decision. You have both got

:13:20.:13:25.

personal experience again from different points of view. I have

:13:26.:13:31.

been to Dignitas twice, a husband and his wife, within two years of

:13:32.:13:42.

each other. She died of palsy, and there is no palliative care for

:13:43.:13:46.

that. She could no longer use her tongue and could not speak. In the

:13:47.:13:51.

end, she decided to end her life. She could not do it here. One year

:13:52.:13:57.

and a half later, my best friend, Bob, who was a very active mountain

:13:58.:14:06.

near, campaign, what have you, contracted asbestosis, ravaging him

:14:07.:14:12.

to the point where he had 22 boxes of pills beside his bed. --

:14:13.:14:16.

mountaineer. He was still like this, clutching his chest, rocking

:14:17.:14:21.

backwards and forwards, saying I feel as though my chest is on fire.

:14:22.:14:25.

So the argument is not that people should not have palliative care, of

:14:26.:14:30.

course they should, but sometimes it does not work. Bob was especially

:14:31.:14:39.

lucid, along with his wife before him. And you lost your son? Yes. He

:14:40.:14:46.

died in 2009 after five years of having soft tissue sarcoma. He had a

:14:47.:14:53.

different outlook on things. Although towards the end he was

:14:54.:14:56.

increasingly disabled, found it difficult to walk found it difficult

:14:57.:15:02.

to eat. And his pain levels grew increasingly high until he really

:15:03.:15:06.

needed very high levels of morphine just to control the pain. But he

:15:07.:15:13.

always wanted to live and get the full amount out of life. The morning

:15:14.:15:18.

of the day he died, he said to me, dad, I am going to beat cancer. That

:15:19.:15:22.

is what made it work. Some people say you should not fight it. That is

:15:23.:15:26.

what kept him alive. Different people have different attitudes.

:15:27.:15:30.

There is the key problem, that's why the law is very keen on this. It

:15:31.:15:37.

comes down to individuals but you were talking about people who

:15:38.:15:41.

perhaps need to be protected, do you see that point? As I said earlier, I

:15:42.:15:46.

completely agree that there need to be checks and balances that at the

:15:47.:15:50.

moment there is no legal control, lots of people are taking their own

:15:51.:15:54.

lives in private, assisted by friends, which is potentially

:15:55.:15:59.

illegal. The campaign I think is for... I admire Noel's being able to

:16:00.:16:07.

campaign at a time when he is dying, which is remarkable. Is not just

:16:08.:16:13.

campaigning for himself, he's campaigning for others so they can

:16:14.:16:16.

have the freedom to die with dignity. That's a pretty basic human

:16:17.:16:20.

rights. Tony, as we've been explaining through Nick, that right

:16:21.:16:26.

to control how your life comes to an end? I totally understand that and I

:16:27.:16:32.

have enormous admiration for Noel and his bike. I looked at the

:16:33.:16:38.

proposed changes to the law and I accept all the checks and balances

:16:39.:16:41.

but it doesn't stop people being influenced at a time when they are

:16:42.:16:45.

very susceptible -- fight. That's my concern. Say I believe personal

:16:46.:16:50.

experience isn't a good guide to good, sound law. We need to find a

:16:51.:16:55.

form of law that meets all the requirements and it doesn't at the

:16:56.:16:58.

moment. Thanks very much to you both. That goes to the High Court

:16:59.:17:04.

today and Nole Conway is too ill to go to court but thank you very much

:17:05.:17:08.

indeed -- Noel Conway. Thanks very much. I'm sure you will be involved

:17:09.:17:13.

at home as well. Let us know what you think. We will try to read out

:17:14.:17:15.

your comments later on. It's going to be lovely, it is

:17:16.:17:22.

already if you are by the Humber Bridge, like Matt this morning. Good

:17:23.:17:27.

morning again! Good morning and good morning to you. I am by the Humber

:17:28.:17:32.

Bridge, it took 100 years of campaigning, eight years of

:17:33.:17:36.

construction, tens of thousands of tons of steel and concrete and at

:17:37.:17:42.

peak construction it was using 1000 members of staff. Today, exactly 36

:17:43.:17:47.

years after it was officially opened by the Queen, it has received grade

:17:48.:17:51.

one listed status putting it on a par with the likes of Buckingham

:17:52.:17:55.

Palace and the houses of Commons. It's not the only place to receive

:17:56.:17:59.

listed status today, eight other parts of Britain's England's I

:18:00.:18:06.

should say have received listed status. It is linked to Hull's city

:18:07.:18:27.

of culture status -- England's I should say have received listed

:18:28.:18:31.

status. Out of them all it has to be said my favourite is the bridge

:18:32.:18:35.

behind me. A beautiful sight. 8 million journeys are taken over that

:18:36.:18:39.

bridge every year and traffic is building now.

:18:40.:18:41.

Blue skies overhead at the moment. If we look at the forecast today,

:18:42.:18:48.

not just blue skies here but blue skies for many, shaping up to be a

:18:49.:18:52.

stunning summer's date for the vast majority. We've started on a fresh

:18:53.:18:57.

note, a bit cooler for one or two, but warming up in the sunshine --

:18:58.:19:03.

summer's day. Patchy cloud in the English Channel towards the

:19:04.:19:06.

south-west and the west of Wales, high cloud elsewhere turning

:19:07.:19:10.

sunshine hazy but for most blue skies overhead. North and west

:19:11.:19:14.

Scotland more cloud with a few showers, mainly like. They will

:19:15.:19:21.

continue to affect Orkney and Shetland into the afternoon but

:19:22.:19:24.

elsewhere the cloud will break up and the sunshine will come through

:19:25.:19:27.

-- mainly light. Temperature is widely into the 20s and very strong

:19:28.:19:30.

sunshine overhead, even if it doesn't feel as hot and humid for

:19:31.:19:34.

some in the south as yesterday but temperatures in the south-east could

:19:35.:19:39.

peak at around 25 or 27. 25 or 26 in some parts of north-east England,

:19:40.:19:43.

including here by the Humber in Hull, 25 not out the question in

:19:44.:19:47.

eastern Northern Ireland and eastern Scotland but always cooler in Orkney

:19:48.:19:50.

and Shetland where we continue with the cloud. Tonight the cloud will

:19:51.:19:55.

come and go in Orkney and Shetland, more cloud to the west of England

:19:56.:19:58.

and Wales but most will have clearer skies, light winds and patchy mist

:19:59.:20:06.

and fog and fresh to start. Temperatures changing from day to

:20:07.:20:09.

night to start the week. But tomorrow could be a hot day. A bit

:20:10.:20:13.

more cloud in western England and Wales but still with good sunny

:20:14.:20:17.

spells to be found. Temperatures will shoot up markedly but with more

:20:18.:20:21.

of a breeze to the south and east of England, warmest weather will be

:20:22.:20:24.

found in parts of the south-west Midlands and south east Wales, where

:20:25.:20:30.

we could get 28 or 29 and to the north of Scotland, 27 or 28 around

:20:31.:20:33.

the Moray Firth and north-west Highlands. Late on you will notice

:20:34.:20:39.

those clusters of shower clouds pushing up from south-west England

:20:40.:20:43.

to Wales, they could produce nasty thunderstorms. Initially they will

:20:44.:20:47.

just be lightning but then in Northern Ireland and Scotland they

:20:48.:20:50.

will turn into torrential rain storms that could produce minor

:20:51.:20:52.

flooding and that will affect the far north-west on Wednesday. Hot and

:20:53.:20:57.

humid on Wednesday, especially to eastern England, 30 or 31 possible

:20:58.:21:02.

and we could see in temperatures thunderstorms brewing in England and

:21:03.:21:06.

Wales for a time. We will keep you updated tomorrow. Those storms out

:21:07.:21:10.

of the way by Thursday and it will feel fresher and it should be sunny

:21:11.:21:14.

for most on Thursday but in parts of Northern Ireland and western

:21:15.:21:17.

Scotland, more cloud and rain pushing in later. A cracking start

:21:18.:21:21.

to the week, stormy midweek and fresher to end. That's your weather

:21:22.:21:26.

in a nutshell. Back to you both. Thanks very much, see you in half an

:21:27.:21:31.

hour. I have a fact about the Humber Bridge, it is so good I am going to

:21:32.:21:34.

save it! It's more than 1,000 years

:21:35.:21:35.

since the lynx became extinct in the UK but campaigners hope

:21:36.:21:38.

a decision later today An application being considered

:21:39.:21:40.

by Natural England could see them released into Kielder Forest

:21:41.:21:44.

in Northumberland, but the return of a major predator

:21:45.:21:46.

is worrying farmers. Breakfast's Graham Satchell has

:21:47.:21:48.

got all the details. The last lynx in Britain was killed

:21:49.:21:52.

for its fur 1,300 years ago. The application going

:21:53.:21:56.

in to Natural England today Between six and ten wild lynx

:21:57.:21:58.

released into Kielder Forest in This is a huge

:21:59.:22:02.

conservation milestone. This is the first licence ever

:22:03.:22:11.

submitted to reintroduce lynx This is a life-sized cutout

:22:12.:22:14.

of a lynx, so that's actually how big a real lynx is,

:22:15.:22:19.

so they aren't that big, Paul O'Donoghue from the Lynx Trust

:22:20.:22:22.

has been doing a consultation, talking, listening and explaining

:22:23.:22:27.

and the children at Kielder First Lynx live all over the world

:22:28.:22:29.

and in human history a healthy wild lynx has never, ever,

:22:30.:22:35.

ever attacked a human anywhere There's a genuine excitement

:22:36.:22:38.

here and enthusiasm for the return They do look really nice and it's

:22:39.:22:46.

good that they don't hurt any They might not hurt people

:22:47.:22:50.

but lynx are expert hunters. Deer eat out the understory,

:22:51.:22:58.

they overgrazed and if you see now there's very little under story

:22:59.:23:07.

around so there's not really many places for small mammals and birds

:23:08.:23:10.

to nest and lynx are needed to control that balance,

:23:11.:23:14.

to balance the ecosystem. Not according to sheep farmers,

:23:15.:23:16.

who say deer are not a problem I think it's absolutely a stupid

:23:17.:23:19.

idea for a predator that's not been in this country for 1,000 years

:23:20.:23:29.

to be released where it's going to cause damage

:23:30.:23:32.

to viable business. As far as I'm concerned,

:23:33.:23:34.

the lynx will go for the easy target, which is going

:23:35.:23:37.

to be sheep and lamb. Farmers would be compensated

:23:38.:23:47.

for any livestock lost, but they are strongly

:23:48.:23:49.

against the issuing of a licence. There's got to be a legal case taken

:23:50.:23:55.

against them because to release a dangerous animal onto private

:23:56.:23:59.

land, that can't possibly be right. I can understand the

:24:00.:24:02.

farmers being nervous... In the local pub, Mike Brown

:24:03.:24:08.

is thinking about his business. One estimate suggests the lynx

:24:09.:24:13.

could bring around ?30 million It is the most remote village

:24:14.:24:15.

in England, so we need as many We rely on tourist trade,

:24:16.:24:25.

that's 99% of the trade Will Kielder Forest become

:24:26.:24:29.

the land of the lynx? The decision is now in the hands

:24:30.:24:35.

of Natural England but if they say yes, experts predict

:24:36.:24:39.

there could eventually be as many as 400 lynx in forests

:24:40.:24:42.

around the UK. Graham Satchell, BBC

:24:43.:24:44.

News, Kielder Forest. Very beautiful. Would you like me to

:24:45.:25:00.

give you the fact about the Humber Bridge? I can't wait. This has been

:25:01.:25:06.

sent in by Tim. And actual fact? I think it is right, both the towers

:25:07.:25:10.

are vertical but they are not parallel. That is because of the

:25:11.:25:15.

curvature of the Earth, they are so far apart, as you can see, there's a

:25:16.:25:20.

few inches' difference between the top and the bottom because it is so

:25:21.:25:24.

big. I'm not sure that's my favourite of your facts. OK, I have

:25:25.:25:30.

stolen it from Tim Hill but thanks for those, keep sending them in.

:25:31.:25:32.

That's the scene in Hull this Now, though, it's back

:32:15.:32:56.

talking about the macro weight, I will get this ready while we talk

:32:57.:33:10.

about the sport. We have some bridge facts coming on. Look at this golden

:33:11.:33:22.

picture of Roger Federer in a golden frame. He managed this without

:33:23.:33:36.

dropping a frame. Wasn't he a bit presumptuous with that T-shirt that

:33:37.:33:45.

had his name and the number eight? I will give you that one, I did not

:33:46.:33:47.

love that. But anyway. Yes, Roger Federer is the Wimbledon

:33:48.:33:52.

champion for a record eighth time and he did it without really needing

:33:53.:33:55.

to break sweat against Maric Cilic. Federer won in straight sets

:33:56.:33:59.

in just one hour 41 minutes The Swiss is the first man

:34:00.:34:01.

since Bjorn Borg to win the title without dropping a set

:34:02.:34:06.

throughout the tournament. I was not sure if I was ever going

:34:07.:34:13.

to be here again in another final after last year. I had some tough

:34:14.:34:22.

ones, losing to Novak Djokovic in 2014 and 2015. But I always thought

:34:23.:34:26.

I could maybe do it again. If you really

:34:27.:34:28.

believe you can go far enough I kept dreaming and

:34:29.:34:30.

believing, and here I am. And the last day of Wimbledon wasn't

:34:31.:34:34.

without some British success. Jamie Murray and former singles

:34:35.:34:38.

champion Martina Hingis beat the defending champions,

:34:39.:34:40.

Britain's Heather Watson and Finland's Henri Kontinen

:34:41.:34:42.

in straight sets. Really happy that I contacted Jamie

:34:43.:34:44.

for playing together. Pretty much my dream came true

:34:45.:34:46.

to give ourselves a good chance to win the title, and we did

:34:47.:34:50.

the blue it was a great two weeks And Jamie Murray wasn't

:34:51.:34:54.

the only British winner. Jordanne Whiley and her Japanese

:34:55.:35:07.

partner Yui Kamiji have won their fourth successive women's

:35:08.:35:10.

wheelchairs doubles title. Amazing achievements. You have to

:35:11.:35:27.

feel sorry for Marin Cilic with that horrible blister on the sole of his

:35:28.:35:31.

Ford which had to be attended to. Look at this! -- foot. Both he and

:35:32.:35:42.

the blister were weeping. That is when you realise you are on your

:35:43.:35:46.

own. You cannot turn to a tee. He was waiting his whole career for

:35:47.:35:53.

this. The only thing you can say in consolation is you would hope he

:35:54.:36:13.

would be there again. Talking about that, Roger has said he hasn't

:36:14.:36:16.

thought about next year, but wouldn't it be wonderful. Do you

:36:17.:36:22.

think he will be going for ten? Maybe he could be cryogenically

:36:23.:36:25.

frozen and brought out every year for Wimbledon. They are at the top

:36:26.:36:45.

of the game now and are doing things like only playing important matches,

:36:46.:36:47.

play less, play better. Maybe we should all do that and only come

:36:48.:36:49.

into work every once in a while. Great Britain's Jonnie Peacock has

:36:50.:36:51.

won gold in the Men's 100m T44 to become the eighth British

:36:52.:36:55.

gold-medallist of the 2017 Peacock's winning time was 10.75

:36:56.:36:57.

seconds inside the London Stadium, it was actually slower

:36:58.:37:01.

than his heat-winning Britain also picked up a bronze

:37:02.:37:02.

through Maria Lyle in the Women's I knew I was in good form,

:37:03.:37:07.

but at the end of the day, when it comes to the final,

:37:08.:37:11.

I don't care about times. It is a great cherry

:37:12.:37:14.

on top of the icing, but medals are what I can keep

:37:15.:37:17.

forever and what I can look back on. And there's been more British

:37:18.:37:21.

success this weekend. Lewis Hamilton won

:37:22.:37:23.

the British Grand Prix The historic victory

:37:24.:37:25.

moves him to within a point of Sebastien Vettel at the half way

:37:26.:37:29.

stage of the Formula One season. That, after the Championship Leader

:37:30.:37:32.

suffered a dramatic late puncture. I am so proud to see

:37:33.:37:35.

all of these flags. Thank you for the support

:37:36.:37:40.

and pushing us. England's cricketers need to produce

:37:41.:37:46.

an heroic effort if they're to avoid defeat, when the second test

:37:47.:38:03.

against South Africa The tourists are firmly in control

start when Alastair Cook was given That decision was eventually

:38:10.:38:15.

overturned but England face an uphull task to stop South Africa

:38:16.:38:18.

levelling the series. We did not play very well at all,

:38:19.:38:21.

but we have the opportunity to bat well for the next two days

:38:22.:38:25.

and see what we can do. You cannot rule it out as well,

:38:26.:38:28.

with the players we have. And the wickets are

:38:29.:38:31.

still pretty good. We have played spin

:38:32.:38:33.

pretty well in the past. And one man who wasn't expecting

:38:34.:38:49.

to be there is Callum Shinkwin. The world number 405

:38:50.:39:02.

earned his place, finishing second But it could have been

:39:03.:39:05.

oh so much sweeter. The 24-year-old missed a putt to win

:39:06.:39:08.

the tournament outright, had to play-off against

:39:09.:39:11.

Rafa Cabera Bello, and missed again, handing the Spaniard

:39:12.:39:14.

victory at Dundonald. Open soon. And the incredible game,

:39:15.:39:24.

set, mug. Before that, can I use these to assist your understanding

:39:25.:39:34.

of the Humber Bridge. The towers are vertical, but not parallel, because

:39:35.:39:40.

of the curvature of the Earth. A vertical tower. They are vertical.

:39:41.:39:45.

But because they are so far apart, there it is,... When they come back,

:39:46.:39:54.

they are not parallel, because they are like this. Or are they like

:39:55.:40:07.

that? No... Oh, I never did geography. It is like that, isn't

:40:08.:40:11.

it? Different at the bottom. I am glad you used tennis racquets or I

:40:12.:40:18.

would never get it. We are only allowed one go each at this. In!

:40:19.:40:30.

Nearly! For the team! I need a racket. Absolutely useless. One,

:40:31.:40:41.

two, three! I never knew that tennis racquets could be so useful. Maybe I

:40:42.:40:45.

would have done geography is my teacher had them. We needed a proper

:40:46.:41:00.

go. You are a great teacher. I nearly went into it but was told I

:41:01.:41:02.

was too mature. Good morning. Getting a dog can be one of the most

:41:03.:41:05.

important and rewarding decisions a family can make but an increasing

:41:06.:41:09.

number of people are being caught The RSPCA says 2016 saw the largest

:41:10.:41:12.

number of calls by the public reporting problems with breeders

:41:13.:41:17.

and dealers and the charity is warning buyers against people

:41:18.:41:20.

in the trade who put We spoke to some dog lovers

:41:21.:41:22.

about what precautions you should Hi, this is our dog. A lot of

:41:23.:41:47.

problems nowadays with puppy farms. We wanted to look at where he was.

:41:48.:41:53.

We were lucky. I am from Manchester and these are my three dogs. Our

:41:54.:42:05.

first pup was two years old when he died of PDA, meningitis. It meant he

:42:06.:42:11.

was ill. We found out later from the puppy farm. Unfortunately, we got

:42:12.:42:16.

the wrong choice at that time. Hi, I'm Jen. This is a four-year-old

:42:17.:42:24.

puppy. We did not think about the whole process and breed at the time.

:42:25.:42:44.

I'm Nick. And this is Vanessa. And this is our boy Albert. And this is

:42:45.:42:48.

our little girl Victoria. Recommended breeders locally were

:42:49.:42:51.

good for us. We went down to see Albert and meet him for the first

:42:52.:42:55.

time. They also check us out to make sure we were good dog owners. Some

:42:56.:42:59.

people just say that is great and go home with a puppy. Some people go

:43:00.:43:08.

home without thinking about it first. Look at the research first.

:43:09.:43:16.

Personally, he is like a grandchild to me and has made our family.

:43:17.:43:22.

They were amazing scenes. Honestly, there were 2000 pugs outside. It was

:43:23.:43:35.

Pugfest. Joining us now to discuss this

:43:36.:43:35.

further is the RSPCA's Good morning. Good morning. People

:43:36.:43:46.

might think that a puppy is a puppy, but you are concerned about where

:43:47.:43:49.

they are coming from. Yes. What we have seen in the last 5- the years

:43:50.:43:57.

is a huge increase in puppies being sold directly over the Internet. --

:43:58.:44:01.

5-6. They are coming from puppy farms in Eastern Europe. They are

:44:02.:44:16.

trucked in by the hundreds through the ports and sold on through free

:44:17.:44:20.

internet sites in days. The problem is the welfare standards were the

:44:21.:44:23.

dogs are bred are considerably less than what is expected. The dogs are

:44:24.:44:26.

removed from their mothers too early and they don't get the right

:44:27.:44:29.

immunisation levels they should. They have no vaccinations. There is

:44:30.:44:38.

cross contamination between dogs and their source. They come in to the

:44:39.:44:45.

country carrying life-threatening diseases that don't really manifest

:44:46.:44:53.

themselves until a couple of days after the buyer gets them home. It

:44:54.:44:59.

is not just about pugs, but all puppies. When we got our dog, we got

:45:00.:45:04.

the advice to make sure you can see the mother and check them out. What

:45:05.:45:08.

other advice can we give them? It is all about research. You have to do

:45:09.:45:14.

as much research as possible. Don't give in to the temptation of

:45:15.:45:21.

instantly buying. If you do your research on the Internet, look at

:45:22.:45:39.

local breeders, go onto the RSPCA website where they have the Puppy

:45:40.:45:43.

Contract, a guidebook on how to buy a dog. It tells you what you should

:45:44.:45:47.

be doing. The problem is a lot of these dealers are criminal by

:45:48.:45:50.

nature. And what they set out to do is to dupe that buyer into believing

:45:51.:45:55.

they have a homebred puppy. So if they are floundering, that is a red

:45:56.:45:57.

flag. They will have an adult dog present

:45:58.:46:06.

at the place of sale and try to pass that off as the mother of the

:46:07.:46:11.

puppies. If when you turn up that dog is showing no interest in the

:46:12.:46:16.

puppies or it has been produced from another room or they will come up

:46:17.:46:20.

with a story about the mother is out at the vet all gone for a walk,

:46:21.:46:25.

these should be raising red flags not to purchase from those sellers.

:46:26.:46:29.

Obviously as well when you get a puppy, and you take it to your vet,

:46:30.:46:34.

make sure it has the right vaccinations. The first place you

:46:35.:46:39.

should go to is your local vet, any documentation given with these dogs,

:46:40.:46:43.

take that to the vet and get them to have a look at it. They will produce

:46:44.:46:48.

fake vaccination cards and it's the key time when you get the puppy home

:46:49.:46:54.

where it could fall ill. Those key questions, on the RSPCA website?

:46:55.:46:59.

Yes, the puppy contract, you can download it and it will give you the

:47:00.:47:03.

advice you need. The dog should know its name as well if there is the

:47:04.:47:09.

mother there. All these things are put in place to defraud the buyer.

:47:10.:47:11.

Thanks so much! We are out and about this morning by

:47:12.:47:20.

the side of the Humber Bridge and we have been learning about the

:47:21.:47:23.

curvature of the Earth and we can learn about the weather with Matt,

:47:24.:47:27.

who has a gorgeous view. Good morning. Another fact, did you know

:47:28.:47:34.

the first plans and proposals for a crossing across the Humber at this

:47:35.:47:39.

point were in 1872. It was meant to be a tunnel. Several proposals have

:47:40.:47:47.

been since and in 1959, the Humber Bridge, in all its splendour, got

:47:48.:47:51.

its construction approval but it wasn't until this day in 1981 that

:47:52.:47:57.

the Queen officially opened it. It is a stunning example of

:47:58.:48:00.

architecture and engineering and today it has received grade one

:48:01.:48:05.

listed status, which puts it in line with the likes of Buckingham Palace

:48:06.:48:09.

and the House of Commons. It's not the only place to receive listed

:48:10.:48:14.

status today, all other aid arguing to be in the city of falsity, part

:48:15.:48:19.

of the City of Culture, including some gorgeous Edwardian toilets in

:48:20.:48:34.

the city -- eight all in the city of Hull. This structure behind me, 410

:48:35.:48:41.

metres in length, the most well-known of all. Under blue skies

:48:42.:48:46.

at the moment. It will be under blue skies all day long, as will much of

:48:47.:48:50.

the UK. Not just a sunny day but after a fresh start it will be an

:48:51.:48:54.

increasingly warm one. A bit of cloud at the moment in western and

:48:55.:48:59.

Northern Scotland producing some light showers, they will continue in

:49:00.:49:02.

Orkney and Shetland into the afternoon and patchy cloud into

:49:03.:49:05.

parts of being this Channel, south-west England and for some in

:49:06.:49:09.

Wales. Most of that will be well broken with sunshine coming through,

:49:10.:49:15.

always more cloud to the south-west -- of the English Channel. Strong

:49:16.:49:21.

sunshine throughout. Temperatures in the low to mid 20s for many. Could

:49:22.:49:26.

hit 25 or 27 in some parts of eastern England, including in the

:49:27.:49:30.

north-east of England. Eastern parts of Northern Ireland could hit 25, as

:49:31.:49:35.

could eastern parts of Scotland. Always a bit cooler to the far north

:49:36.:49:39.

of Scotland, especially Orkney and Shetland, but you should finish the

:49:40.:49:43.

day dry with a few breaks in the cloud as well. Tonight, we start

:49:44.:49:48.

dry, a dry night for just about everyone again. A bit more cloud to

:49:49.:49:52.

the south-west of the country at times but with clear spies

:49:53.:49:56.

elsewhere, some mist and fog patches forming and a bit on the chillis

:49:57.:50:01.

side to start Tuesday -- clear skies. A bit of variation from

:50:02.:50:08.

morning and afternoon. -- chilly side. The breeze will be a bit

:50:09.:50:13.

stronger in southern and eastern England. You have to head west for

:50:14.:50:17.

the highest temperatures. Parts of the Midlands, south east in Wales,

:50:18.:50:23.

could get to 28 or 29 and could hit 27 in the far north of Scotland.

:50:24.:50:27.

Late in the day, some storms pushing into the south-west, lightning

:50:28.:50:31.

mainly to begin with but as they drift north overnight into parts of

:50:32.:50:35.

northern England and into Northern Ireland and western Scotland, some

:50:36.:50:38.

torrential rain storms are possible as well and rain on and off on

:50:39.:50:41.

Wednesday through the north-west of the UK. Sunshine for a time in

:50:42.:50:46.

England and Wales, very humid on Wednesday and we could see

:50:47.:50:50.

temperatures get very close to if not just above 30 Celsius in eastern

:50:51.:50:54.

parts of England but that in itself good set of one or two isolated but

:50:55.:50:58.

pretty severe storms. Details on where they will be, uncertain at the

:50:59.:51:03.

moment, we will keep you updated. Fresher air clears them out of the

:51:04.:51:07.

way on Thursday, rain to the north and west on Thursday later on but

:51:08.:51:15.

most will have a dry day and after a sticky Wednesday, feeling more

:51:16.:51:18.

comfortable as well. That's how your weather is looking from the glorious

:51:19.:51:21.

sight of the Humber Bridge here. Back to you both. Spectacular this

:51:22.:51:26.

morning. Thanks very much indeed! A swan in the background! I was

:51:27.:51:28.

fascinated by that's one! Palma Airport in Majorca is one

:51:29.:51:38.

of Europe's busiest airports for holidaymakers and lots

:51:39.:51:40.

of Brits on holiday there have been caught

:51:41.:51:43.

up in huge queues. Sean's has more on this,

:51:44.:51:45.

there's been a few problems Heathrow, Manchester,

:51:46.:51:48.

Edinburgh have all seen long queues for a variety of reasons,

:51:49.:51:59.

from technical glitches to power Palma Airport in Majorca

:52:00.:52:02.

was the latest to affect those on their holidays, with some queuing

:52:03.:52:06.

for more than two hours at passport My girlfriend and I flew into Palma

:52:07.:52:16.

airport on Wednesday evening. We were greeted with scenes of chaos.

:52:17.:52:22.

At passport control there was a queue of about 2000 people. It was

:52:23.:52:26.

hot, no air conditioning, no instructions being given by any of

:52:27.:52:31.

the officials, no water handed out, children crying. That you took about

:52:32.:52:35.

two hours to get through and when we finally got to passport control,

:52:36.:52:38.

there were only three passport control officers checking passports

:52:39.:52:43.

so all in all it was a terrible experience.

:52:44.:52:44.

Tony Mann is director of Idle Travel near Bradford.

:52:45.:52:52.

That sounded horrendous, that experience. More than 5 million

:52:53.:52:57.

people are going through the airport last year from the UK, what is going

:52:58.:53:02.

wrong? It seems since earlier on in the year, Palma was hit quite bad,

:53:03.:53:09.

these new passport security checks in place have meant it takes longer

:53:10.:53:14.

and at peak times they seem to have had a strain where people can be

:53:15.:53:20.

there up to two hours before so people need to take into account if

:53:21.:53:23.

you're an independent traveller to get there earlier. If you're on a

:53:24.:53:27.

package deal, they will be monitoring the situation and they

:53:28.:53:31.

will get you there in good time. You say get there in good time but if

:53:32.:53:35.

you get their two hours before your flight but you are met with a huge

:53:36.:53:40.

queue, and actually UQ for that length of time and you don't make

:53:41.:53:44.

it, what rights do you have to get your money back? Your rights aren't

:53:45.:53:48.

great because in the end it's not down to the airline, they say to get

:53:49.:53:53.

there in good time so it isn't their fault, you could be stuck and it

:53:54.:53:56.

could cost you more money to rebook unless you get a gesture of goodwill

:53:57.:54:00.

from the airline to read book your flights. We are coming up to peak

:54:01.:54:05.

time and a busy time so that will be difficult to do. Do you feel like

:54:06.:54:09.

airports are ready and prepared and have everything in place with these

:54:10.:54:14.

new regulations? Sometimes resources at certain airports are stretched at

:54:15.:54:18.

times. When peak times, long, whichever airport it is, we always

:54:19.:54:23.

advise customers to go at least two hours before. Even in the UK, could

:54:24.:54:28.

be be worse than previous summers? We are lucky in the travel industry

:54:29.:54:33.

at the moment, things have been going the way we are concerned.

:54:34.:54:38.

Flights... This is peak school holidays, these airports will be

:54:39.:54:42.

really busy. At times, whether it is abroad or in the UK, give yourself

:54:43.:54:47.

plenty of time. In terms of the resources British airports have got,

:54:48.:54:51.

do they have enough? It's not too bad at the British airports. On

:54:52.:54:56.

couple from quite a few different ones and at times certainly don't go

:54:57.:54:59.

for your minimum check-in time, that's not the thing to do because

:55:00.:55:03.

you would struggle so definitely go early. It strains a bit at peak

:55:04.:55:09.

times, like everything does, so my advice would be to go early and get

:55:10.:55:15.

a good travel experience. Go early, good advice! If you've had any

:55:16.:55:21.

experiences like this this summer then let us know. Rubbish if you go

:55:22.:55:27.

through that. Let us know on Twitter, Facebook and we will come

:55:28.:55:28.

back to you. I turn up very early at airports so

:55:29.:55:37.

thank you very much! I will go even earlier! Earlier we were talking

:55:38.:55:41.

about the right to die and so many people have got in contact, let me

:55:42.:55:46.

read a few. The right to die and manage one's own death is a basic

:55:47.:55:50.

human rights, right now people suffer with no option and our pets

:55:51.:55:54.

have much better end to life options. And as Lee said it is

:55:55.:55:58.

humane and right people have control when they die. -- Leslie says. Mike

:55:59.:56:04.

said it is a basic human necessity. Thanks for getting in touch. You can

:56:05.:56:09.

e-mail us or talk to us on Twitter as well.

:56:10.:56:11.

Keep watching because in the course of the next hour you may be one of

:56:12.:56:16.

those people, bleary eyed this morning, you may have watched season

:56:17.:56:21.

:56:22.:56:26.

she plays one of the characters in Game of Thrones. Gemma Weir and will

:56:27.:56:28.

be with us in the next hour. in our BBC newsrooms across the UK

:56:29.:56:30.

this morning. Plenty more on our website

:56:31.:59:49.

at the usual address. Now, though, it's back

:59:50.:59:51.

to Louise and Dan. Hello, this is Breakfast,

:59:52.:59:53.

with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin. Details of 16,000 jobs are announced

:59:54.:00:33.

as the first major contracts to build the HS2 rail

:00:34.:00:38.

line are revealed. The high speed line

:00:39.:00:40.

between Birmingham and London will cost around 7 billion pounds -

:00:41.:00:42.

the final routes for extensions to Leeds and Manchester

:00:43.:00:44.

will also be unveiled. Good morning - we've just got

:00:45.:00:49.

the names of the companies who'll be building the first phase

:00:50.:00:52.

of the huge project. The likes of Carillion and Alfred

:00:53.:01:02.

Beatty or two of the firms that are rumoured to be involved.

:01:03.:01:04.

Also this morning: a record is broken at Wimbledon...

:01:05.:01:21.

The King of Centre Court does it again.

:01:22.:01:23.

A record EIGHTH Wimbledon title for Roger Federer,

1000 years after the lynx became extinct in the UK -

:01:29.:01:35.

a plan is considered to reintroduce them in Northern England.

:01:36.:01:52.

The next Doctor Who is a girl! Plenty of reaction like that as

:01:53.:02:01.

Jodie Whittaker is revealed as the next Doctor. We have more reaction.

:02:02.:02:05.

Game of Thrones is back - we'll be discussing series seven

:02:06.:02:08.

with Gemma Whelan who plays Yara Greyjoy.

:02:09.:02:13.

It doesn't look like winter is coming in Hull today. Matt is with

:02:14.:02:22.

us for the weather. Sunny skies overhead. It took 100 years of

:02:23.:02:26.

campaigning, eight years of construction, the Humber Bridge,

:02:27.:02:32.

this bridge has received grade one listed status, we will be talking

:02:33.:02:36.

about the bridge and the forecast which contains lots of sunshine but

:02:37.:02:37.

will it last? The final route for

:02:38.:02:39.

the controversial HS2 rail line north of Birmingham will be

:02:40.:02:44.

announced today - There's also more detail on who has

:02:45.:02:46.

been awarded contracts worth nearly seven billion pounds

:02:47.:02:52.

to work on the first stretch of the line -

:02:53.:02:55.

including troubled construction giant Carillion - and information

:02:56.:03:00.

on around 16,000 jobs. Sean is here. What do you have us?

:03:01.:03:13.

This is just the first phase, ?7 billion in total, when they have

:03:14.:03:17.

finally old at all, if that ever happens, we will get there in

:03:18.:03:22.

decades, ?57 billion, current costs. There have been questions over that

:03:23.:03:27.

figure, questions over the weekend, some researchers putting together

:03:28.:03:31.

figures saying it will be double that, but the government says it's

:03:32.:03:35.

not true, everything is on-time and on budget. That little bit of money

:03:36.:03:41.

this morning, little bit, ?7 billion, will go to companies

:03:42.:03:44.

including Balfour Beatty, the one that John died as Carillion,

:03:45.:03:47.

Brilliant making headlines last week, the share price fall in by 7%,

:03:48.:03:57.

financial problems, debt issues, interestingly along side the

:03:58.:03:59.

announcement, Carillion has said they are appointing a new strategic

:04:00.:04:04.

advisor to try and sort out the company, Albert the cost reductions.

:04:05.:04:09.

That is the one that might jump out but many workers who have worked on

:04:10.:04:17.

railway upgrades and other schemes, several companies listed. We will

:04:18.:04:23.

know about the route a little bit later because lots of people want to

:04:24.:04:26.

know where it is going. Yes, particularly the detail around

:04:27.:04:30.

Sheffield, we will get that later, whether it goes from Birmingham to

:04:31.:04:34.

Leeds, they have made a final decision but they should do today,

:04:35.:04:38.

also we might hear something about the line to crew and Manchester,

:04:39.:04:42.

could lead that could be implemented earlier than previously thought,

:04:43.:04:47.

2026 phase one, 2027 for the next bit to crew is what we could hear

:04:48.:04:52.

later but residents and environmentalists will be keen to

:04:53.:04:57.

watch that stop Carillion have got to build a tunnel through the

:04:58.:05:00.

children's, that has been particularly controversial.

:05:01.:05:04.

Sheffield is interesting, it was going to go to Meadowhall, the

:05:05.:05:10.

shopping centre, now told that it will go to an existing station, talk

:05:11.:05:15.

that it will go through homes, people moved into a new estate and

:05:16.:05:19.

just a couple of weeks later found out about the rail line. It's not

:05:20.:05:24.

the last time we will speak about this. No, I guarantee you. Thank

:05:25.:05:26.

you. The Brexit Secretary David Davis has

:05:27.:05:31.

called for both sides to "get down to business" this morning

:05:40.:05:44.

any progress this time? It's been pretty slow going, as we

:05:45.:05:57.

expected it would be? I think we will get a press Conference at the

:05:58.:06:00.

end of the week on Thursday at the end of the first round of

:06:01.:06:04.

substantive talks between David Davis and Michel Barnier. In terms

:06:05.:06:09.

of whether there will be progress, that's a good question, EU officials

:06:10.:06:12.

have told me this will be about clarification. Both sides exchanging

:06:13.:06:18.

papers on a range of issues, it will be about getting round a table and

:06:19.:06:22.

each other asking questions about what they really mean, getting

:06:23.:06:25.

details about the other's positions rather than making great leaves

:06:26.:06:31.

forward up this point. David Davis says his personal priority is the

:06:32.:06:34.

issue of citizens rights, what rights were EU citizens living in

:11:08.:11:14.

assistant? Colin Baker, the sixth Doctor, remember him? Change, my

:11:15.:11:20.

dears. Not a moment too soon. She is the doctor whether you like it or

:11:21.:11:27.

not. We will discuss that later on. They write for the Daily Mirror and

:11:28.:11:31.

they are a self-confessed Doctor Who fan. It's 11 minutes past eight.

:11:32.:11:35.

Let's return to one of the main stories.

:11:36.:11:38.

Three years after Flight MH17 was shot down by a missile over

:11:39.:11:41.

Ukraine, relatives are preparing to unveil a "living memorial"

:11:42.:11:43.

A total of 298 trees have been planted to represent each

:11:44.:11:47.

of the people who died on the Malaysia Airline jet.

:11:48.:11:49.

Our Europe Correspondent, Anna Holligan, is in the Hague

:11:50.:11:51.

Anna, it's going to be an emotional day, isn't it?

:11:52.:12:01.

It sounds like such a beautiful memorial. Tell us more about that.

:12:02.:12:08.

Hugely emotional day for the relatives. I was speaking to one of

:12:09.:12:13.

the mothers who lost her son on board flight image 17 and she said

:12:14.:12:16.

it's important to remember remembering brings all the memories

:12:17.:12:20.

flooding back so today this memorial Forest which was chosen by the

:12:21.:12:25.

relatives will be unveiled about 15 minutes Drive away from Schiphol

:12:26.:12:29.

airport were so many of them saw their loved ones for the last time.

:12:30.:12:33.

Each tree bears the name of one of the victims, one of the 298 people

:12:34.:12:40.

on board. It's designed to represent three things, growth, life and hope

:12:41.:12:44.

which is what so many of the families were still holding onto.

:12:45.:12:48.

And of course today is the third anniversary but it's also serving

:12:49.:12:52.

another purpose they say, to keep what happened in the public

:12:53.:12:56.

consciousness as they are terrified people will forget and the pressure

:12:57.:12:59.

will be off the authorities to bring those responsible to justice. As far

:13:00.:13:05.

as the investigation is concerned they identified a long list of

:13:06.:13:09.

persons of interest that they still haven't named any suspects. The

:13:10.:13:13.

victims relatives are still waiting and today remembering. Anne, thank

:13:14.:13:14.

you. A rather beautiful scene today. Joining us now is Jordan Withers,

:13:15.:13:20.

whose uncle Glenn Thomas I worked with Glenn, such a

:13:21.:13:32.

wonderful man. Jordan, you have talked to us very honestly about

:13:33.:13:35.

what is going on, as it is special day today? Massively special. My

:13:36.:13:42.

parents are in the Netherlands today, marking the downing of flight

:13:43.:13:47.

image 17, the trees are being planted, the ribbon that we were in

:13:48.:14:00.

memory of MH17. But I don't want to focus on the barbaric acts too much.

:14:01.:14:06.

It's so cleverly done, there are is an eye that looks up to the sky as

:14:07.:14:10.

part of those trees planted and I know you say you don't want to

:14:11.:14:15.

concentrate on those things but as well as celebrating the lives of the

:14:16.:14:18.

loved ones lost there is an investigation which continues and

:14:19.:14:22.

huge resources being poured into it by the Dutch investigators. Still so

:14:23.:14:27.

many questions unanswered? You know, there should be a lot of money

:14:28.:14:32.

poured into it, it has affected people across five continents and it

:14:33.:14:34.

seems that every turn there is someone trying to stop it from

:14:35.:14:37.

happening but we might be getting somewhere. Unfortunately I think it

:14:38.:14:42.

will take a lot of time but it's nice we are finally getting

:14:43.:14:44.

somewhere and hopefully the perpetrators will be brought to

:14:45.:14:49.

justice, we want justice, it's as simple as that and we won't give up

:14:50.:14:54.

until we get it. So many questions unanswered, which for you is the

:14:55.:14:58.

most important? For me, I want to know who pressed the button

:14:59.:15:01.

essentially and for that chain of command leads up to. I don't know

:15:02.:15:05.

for that leads to, but I doubt it was the person who pressed the

:15:06.:15:10.

button who may or may not have known what they were doing, I think the

:15:11.:15:13.

chain of command is the most important thing but we are not going

:15:14.:15:17.

to stop, we are going to make sure we get the justice that I think all

:15:18.:15:20.

of the victims deserve. Members of your family will be in the

:15:21.:15:25.

Netherlands today, will that be come Isadore Day they happen looking

:15:26.:15:28.

forward to the fact that they still don't know, as that made it more

:15:29.:15:32.

difficult in some respects? They want to do that to be there, but I

:15:33.:15:40.

imagine it doesn't feel complete. My mum is being supported by my dad,

:15:41.:15:45.

she be so upset, plus her twin brother, these days don't get

:15:46.:15:49.

easier, these anniversaries. Every Christmas, every birthday, every

:15:50.:15:56.

anniversary, so difficult each year and they say time heals but the

:15:57.:16:01.

longer it goes on, you live in this and some people forget three years

:16:02.:16:07.

on we have nothing whatsoever. It looks like a beautiful tribute and

:16:08.:16:13.

armorial, will it be software you will visit as a family, do you

:16:14.:16:18.

think? Definitely, not far away from us in the UK but I think the best

:16:19.:16:22.

thing for us, the Forest is a growing memorial, it will get more

:16:23.:16:26.

beautiful as time goes on. Hopefully it will be there for years to come

:16:27.:16:31.

so I can show my children for uncle Glenn is. You said it was something

:16:32.:16:35.

people affect it on five continents, do those families together feel more

:16:36.:16:40.

should be done or is it a case of following this investigation and

:16:41.:16:44.

hoping as you say it finds those people responsible for making that

:16:45.:16:46.

efficient to shoot down? I think more should always be done.

:16:47.:16:55.

It's many the interests of the national community that things

:16:56.:16:59.

should be done. You know, we are a big family of MH 17, the families of

:17:00.:17:03.

victims and we always stay in touch and days like these are perfect to

:17:04.:17:07.

remember them and we get together on these days. So it's a tough day.

:17:08.:17:13.

Brought together under such extraordinary and horrific

:17:14.:17:17.

circumstances as well. I remember working with him when I first

:17:18.:17:21.

started here at the BBC. How do you remember him best? Oh, God, he was

:17:22.:17:27.

just too lively to put into words. He was a brilliant person. Like you

:17:28.:17:30.

said, you've worked with him so you will know he was a great person and

:17:31.:17:34.

he'll be sorely missed by everyone today. I know a lot of people are

:17:35.:17:39.

having a quiet moment or a drink in his memory. Absolutely. Thank you

:17:40.:17:43.

for sharing those memories today and coming in. It seems stupid to say it

:17:44.:17:47.

but I hope your parents have a day they can remember for the right

:17:48.:17:51.

reasons today over in the Netherlands. Thank you very much,

:17:52.:17:55.

nice to see you again, thanks Jordan.

:17:56.:17:58.

You're watching Breakfast from BBC News.

:17:59.:18:00.

It's full steam ahead for HS2 as details of 16,000 jobs connected

:18:01.:18:06.

A terminally-ill man challenges the ban on assisted

:18:07.:18:12.

dying at the High Court, but could a change in the law leave

:18:13.:18:15.

We are going to go back to the Humber Bridge which looks glorious

:18:16.:18:33.

this morning. On the banks of the river, not only

:18:34.:18:42.

can you find the lovely view but Matt is there.

:18:43.:18:47.

The Humber Bridge. It took 100 years of come paining to get it built,

:18:48.:18:51.

eight years of construction and on this very day in 1981, the bridge

:18:52.:18:57.

was officially opened by the Queen. Even pore special today, it receives

:18:58.:19:03.

Grade I listed advice from Historic England. Roger Bowdler from Historic

:19:04.:19:13.

England joins me now. Grade I listed status - what does that mean and why

:19:14.:19:19.

is it so special? It's many the top 2.5% of all listed buildings in the

:19:20.:19:24.

country so it's about standing interests so any changes must

:19:25.:19:27.

respect what makes it so brilliant. Putting it on a par with the likes

:19:28.:19:30.

of Buckingham Palace and the House of Commons? It's an extremely

:19:31.:19:39.

admired thing and is in great company. All of the nine properties

:19:40.:19:45.

that were listed all in the area linked to Hull City of culture, tell

:19:46.:19:50.

us about those? We've liked working with Hull on this, it's a great city

:19:51.:19:55.

with a whole range of things from a 1920s public lavatory to the flat

:19:56.:19:59.

where Phillip Larkin used to live. It's that range and diversity that

:20:00.:20:02.

makes Hull so interesting. Fantastic. The old town has heritage

:20:03.:20:08.

status as well. What does that mean? That is us working with the city to

:20:09.:20:13.

maximise the apeople of the place, celebrate its history and bring in

:20:14.:20:16.

investment and prove lives for everyone. A brilliant day for Hull

:20:17.:20:20.

and the surrounding area? Terrific, great to be a part of it.

:20:21.:20:26.

A lovely morning as well for such an historic occasion for it. Blue skies

:20:27.:20:34.

overhead and for many others today. We have sunshine almost

:20:35.:20:35.

across-the-board but not quite everywhere. It's a very warm day

:20:36.:20:48.

ahead. We started on a cool note. Some rain around the English

:20:49.:20:52.

Channel. Across the far north and west of Scotland too, you could see

:20:53.:20:57.

a shower there. Sunshine will develop through the day in the

:20:58.:21:01.

Hebrides. We'll continue the cloud in Orkney and Shetland, bringing one

:21:02.:21:05.

or two spots of rain into the afternoon. For the majority, it's

:21:06.:21:11.

dry with strong sunshine overhead. Temperatures by this afternoon could

:21:12.:21:15.

reach around 25 to 27 in parts of eastern England. Eastern parts of

:21:16.:21:18.

Northern Ireland and into the east of Scotland, we could also hit 25.

:21:19.:21:23.

Quite widely into the 20s as far as temperatures are concerned. It's a

:21:24.:21:28.

pleasant heat today rather than the humidity of yesterday.

:21:29.:21:32.

In Orkney and Shetland, the cloud remains throughout. Tonight is dry

:21:33.:21:39.

with largely clear skies for many. A bit more cloud across the far

:21:40.:21:44.

south-west. Temperatures will drop away quickly. Big variation between

:21:45.:21:47.

day and night at the moment. That will change as we go through Tuesday

:21:48.:21:54.

night, as I'll show you. For Tuesday itself, another dry day for most.

:21:55.:21:58.

Lots of sunshine around. More cloud in western England and Wales and

:21:59.:22:01.

more breeze to south and east England. Temperatures down a little

:22:02.:22:05.

bit for you tomorrow. Warmest conditions, south-west Midlands,

:22:06.:22:08.

south-eastern parts of Wales could get close to around 28 or 29. Around

:22:09.:22:14.

the Moray Firth and Highlands of Scotland, 27 is not out of the

:22:15.:22:17.

question. We could see some lightning in the far south-west to

:22:18.:22:21.

finish the day, mainly lightning storms to begin with. As they move

:22:22.:22:26.

north, Scotland and Northern Ireland for Wednesday morning, some

:22:27.:22:29.

torrential rain storms to go with it. The north-west on Wednesday will

:22:30.:22:33.

see the most rain. Sunshine develops elsewhere. Very humid. Could get

:22:34.:22:38.

close to 30 if not above in the east. That could set off some

:22:39.:22:43.

isolated, severe storms through Wednesday afternoon. Swept out of

:22:44.:22:48.

the way into Thursday, Thursday will be a day of sunshine and a bit of

:22:49.:22:52.

rain into western Scotland and Northern Ireland and it will

:22:53.:22:55.

certainly feel fresher. A different story, top and tail of the week,

:22:56.:23:00.

warming up to start with, storms midweek and fresher to end. That is

:23:01.:23:10.

how it's looking. Back to you both. Really impressed that your

:23:11.:23:14.

companion, the swan, has stayed with you throughout the programme this

:23:15.:23:17.

morning? He certainly has. They are doing the swan count on the Thames

:23:18.:23:20.

today. Mine doesn't take me too long. Thank you very much.

:23:21.:23:31.

A survey from building society Nationwide has found that more

:23:32.:23:34.

than two thirds of people don't check whether an online competition

:23:35.:23:42.

is genuine before sharing things like their name,

:23:43.:23:48.

People are doing that a bit too easy. Nationwide says they are at

:23:49.:24:07.

risk of fraud even if they are aware of it in the first place. There is a

:24:08.:24:12.

new boss in town at ITV. They've appointed the easyJet boss as its

:24:13.:24:16.

Chief Executive, there she is, she's been there for seven year bus got

:24:17.:24:21.

another big business on her CV now. And there are reports today some

:24:22.:24:31.

references references to Winnie the Pooh have been removed from China.

:24:32.:24:38.

Some observers are saying the chubby bear has been banned

:24:39.:24:40.

because of comparisons made with the Chinese

:24:41.:24:42.

We were talking earlier about queues at Palma Airport. Mrs Donovan's got

:24:43.:24:56.

in touch saying we have just returned from Palma, passport

:24:57.:25:00.

control area dreadful, hundreds queueing, took two hours, very hot,

:25:01.:25:04.

no air conditioning, babies crying in the heat. She said we suggested

:25:05.:25:09.

get there early to avoid missing the flight and a few people have got in

:25:10.:25:13.

touch making this point, saying the problem is, there are only three

:25:14.:25:16.

passport booths open for the thousands going through, it's as if

:25:17.:25:20.

they are on strike. Keep those e-mails coming in. It seems like

:25:21.:25:24.

there is an issue at some airports across Europe. Caroline and John

:25:25.:25:34.

said Faro Airport in Portugal through June, on the way out, no

:25:35.:25:38.

problem, but the queues in passport control going back were horrendous,

:25:39.:25:43.

officials made sure we stayed in the hot and uncomfortable queues. Two

:25:44.:25:48.

hours to get through. Keep getting in touch with us.

We are going to be talking Dr Who. Jodie Whittaker, there she is on the

:26:09.:26:24.

front-page of the telegraph. Jodie first woman doctor kept the secret

:26:25.:26:29.

for months. Mike says everyone I know male and female said before the

:26:30.:26:34.

announcement, if the new doctor is a woman they'll not watch the show. So

:26:35.:26:38.

watch out for falling viewing figures. David says a brave

:26:39.:26:42.

refreshing change, just hope she carries on the character of the

:26:43.:26:51.

doctor. I would hate to make her stop the confrontations with the

:26:52.:27:01.

Daleks just with her make-up. Dr WHO character could be any person of any

:27:02.:27:04.

gender or whatever. Now though it's back

:27:05.:30:24.

to Louise and Dan. Hello this is Breakfast,

:30:25.:30:26.

with Dan Walker and Louise Minchin. The final route for

:30:27.:30:35.

the controversial HS2 rail line north of Birmingham will be

:30:36.:30:41.

announced today - There's also more detail on who has

:30:42.:30:43.

been awarded contracts worth nearly ?7 billion to work on the first

:30:44.:30:51.

stretch of the line - including troubled

:30:52.:30:56.

construction giant, Carillion. There's also information

:30:57.:30:58.

on around 16,000 jobs. The scheme has drawn controversy

:30:59.:31:00.

from campaigners who claim it will only benefit the richest

:31:01.:31:03.

in society but the Transport Secretary said it would,

:31:04.:31:05.

"drive economic growth and productivity in

:31:06.:31:07.

the North and Midlands". A terminally ill man will today

:31:08.:31:08.

begin a legal challenge to overturn the ban on so-called assisted

:31:09.:31:11.

dying. Noel Conway, who has motor neurone disease,

:31:12.:31:14.

wants to change the law in England and Wales so a doctor

:31:15.:31:16.

is allowed to help him die Under the current law,

:31:17.:31:19.

any doctor who helped him would face Opponents say the change would put

:31:20.:31:22.

vulnerable people at risk. The Brexit Secretary David Davis has

:31:23.:31:28.

called for both sides to "get down to business" this morning

:31:29.:31:33.

as the next round of negotiating takes place in Brussels.

:31:34.:31:35.

Mr Davis is meeting the European Commission's chief

:31:36.:31:37.

negotiator, Michel Barnier. Key issues will include the future

:31:38.:31:39.

rights of EU citizens in the UK and British citizens living

:31:40.:31:42.

in other member states. The rise in acid attacks will be

:31:43.:31:50.

discussed in Parliament today. The latest official figures suggest

:31:51.:31:53.

there were more than 400 assaults involving corrosive substances

:31:54.:31:56.

in England and Wales The debate comes as the Government

:31:57.:31:57.

begins a review into the issue which could see sentences

:31:58.:32:04.

for the offence increased. Yesterday, Home Secretary Amber Rudd

:32:05.:32:07.

said she wanted perpetrators The after-effects of the heatwave

:32:08.:32:09.

in Europe last week Fires have broken out in different

:32:10.:32:17.

corners of the continent. Firefighters tackled blazes

:32:18.:32:21.

on the Croatian coast, Scrubland in the mountains of Genoa,

:32:22.:32:23.

Italy, also set alight, And a fire in the north of Portugal,

:32:24.:32:30.

which had been declared as contained, spread once more -

:32:31.:32:35.

sending residents running. The Duchess of Cornwall turns 70

:32:36.:32:45.

today, and Clarence House have marked the occasion by releasing

:32:46.:32:48.

a new official portrait. The picture shows Camilla

:32:49.:32:52.

with the Prince of Wales in the morning room

:32:53.:32:55.

of their London home. It was taken by Mario Testino,

:32:56.:32:58.

who first photographed the couple on their first wedding anniversary

:32:59.:33:01.

in 2006. Now he is a bear who has brought joy

:33:02.:33:20.

to children for a century. But Chinese authorities have blocked

:33:21.:33:27.

social media mentioning Winnie the Pooh after he was compared to the

:33:28.:33:32.

Chinese president. Our correspondent has been following the story. Yes,

:33:33.:33:40.

China's sensors block images of Winnie the Pooh on social media. The

:33:41.:33:46.

reason is that some cheeky bloggers have been comparing the cute, plump

:33:47.:33:52.

cartoon character to the country's president and they have been putting

:33:53.:33:59.

up images of president ping next to Winnie the Pooh. It is not just that

:34:00.:34:04.

they won't tolerate people making fun of the leader, but they don't

:34:05.:34:15.

want Winnie the Pooh to become a way of talking about the president.

:34:16.:34:22.

People use things like rhyming slang. And the president is the

:34:23.:34:27.

latest. As the sensors block one phrase, another comes along. So it

:34:28.:34:33.

is a endless battle between the authorities and the Chinese

:34:34.:34:34.

bloggers. Victoria Derbyshire is on at 9

:34:35.:34:37.

o'clock this morning on BBC2. Let's see what's coming

:34:38.:34:42.

up on the programme. A woman whose sister and mother

:34:43.:34:44.

were shot by her stepfather at the family farm in Surrey goes

:34:45.:34:47.

back for the first time We will be speaking

:34:48.:34:50.

to Stacey Banner, as a new police report following the murders

:34:51.:35:10.

is released this morning. Join us after Breakfast on BBC Two,

:35:11.:35:12.

the BBC News Channel and online. And coming up here on Breakfast this

:35:13.:35:22.

morning: She's one of the stars of one of the biggest shows

:35:23.:35:25.

in the world. Yes, Game of Thrones

:35:26.:35:28.

burst back onto screens If you're a fan stay with us -

:35:29.:35:29.

Gemma Whelan will be here in just Lynx haven't lived wild in the UK

:35:30.:35:34.

for more than a thousand years, but a decision today

:35:35.:35:38.

could change all that. We'll find out why not

:35:39.:35:41.

everybody's happy about it We've got our first female

:35:42.:35:43.

Time Lord in Jodie Whittaker! So how has the news gone

:35:44.:35:49.

down with "Whovians"? Some of them are pleased I think,

:35:50.:36:10.

some not. Are you a Whovian? No, but I might start watching. I think it

:36:11.:36:15.

is a brave decision. She looked fantastic in the trailer. We

:36:16.:36:20.

shouldn't have to talk about it, but it is just a new Doctor. The guy who

:36:21.:36:27.

first commissioned Doctor Who said at the start it could be... Sydney

:36:28.:36:37.

Newman. She is owning it already is what I think. A bit like Roger

:36:38.:36:44.

Federer owning that trophy. Should we just let him have it? Eight times

now. Big mantle piece. It was so emotional yesterday. There was a

:36:52.:36:57.

moment where he had won and he looked up and saw his wife and kids

:36:58.:36:59.

and lost it for a moment. Yes, Roger Federer is the Wimbledon

:37:00.:37:02.

champion for a record eighth time and he did it without really needing

:37:03.:37:05.

to break sweat against Maric Cilic. Federer won in straight sets

:37:06.:37:08.

in just one hour 41 minutes The Swiss is the first man

:37:09.:37:11.

since Bjorn Borg to win the title without dropping a set

:37:12.:37:15.

throughout the tournament. I wasn't sure if I was ever going to

:37:16.:37:22.

be here again in another finals after last year. I have had some

:37:23.:37:28.

tough ones, losing to Novak, but I always believed I could come back

:37:29.:37:33.

and do it again. If you believe, you go far in your life. I did I kept on

:37:34.:37:41.

believing and dreaming and here I am today with the eighth it is

:37:42.:37:42.

fantastic. And there was British success too

:37:43.:37:44.

on the last day of Wimbledon. Jamie Murray and former singles

:37:45.:37:47.

champion Martina Hingis beat the defending champions -

:37:48.:37:49.

Britain's Heather Watson and Finland's Henri Kontinen

:37:50.:37:51.

in straight sets. Really happy they contacted Jamie on

:37:52.:38:03.

playing together and pretty much my wish came true to give ourselves a

:38:04.:38:07.

chance to win the title and we did. It was a great two weeks for us. We

:38:08.:38:15.

played a lot of great tennis. It is a huge achievement.

:38:16.:38:18.

And Jamie Murray wasn't the only British winner.

:38:19.:38:20.

Jordanne Whiley and her Japanese partner Yui Kamiji have

:38:21.:38:22.

won their fourth successive women's wheelchairs doubles title.

:38:23.:38:26.

England's cricketers need to produce a heroic effort

:38:27.:38:28.

if they're to avoid defeat, when the second test

:38:29.:38:30.

against South Africa resumes this morning.

:38:31.:38:32.

The tourists are firmly in control after setting England a target

:38:33.:38:35.

Englands reply got off to a nervous start when Alastair Cook

:38:36.:38:41.

That decision was eventually overturned but England face

:38:42.:38:44.

an uphull task to stop South Africa levelling the series.

:38:45.:38:53.

We didn't play well, but we have the opportunity to bat well and

:38:54.:38:59.

hopefully see what we can do. You can't rule it out with our batting

:39:00.:39:03.

line up and the players that we have. We bat a long way down and the

:39:04.:39:09.

wicket is good. There is a bit of spin, but we have played spin quite

:39:10.:39:11.

well in the past. Britain's defending champion

today as it's a rest day. Back to a history-making

:39:25.:39:32.

Wimbledon now. We will be live there

:39:33.:39:34.

in just a moment. But first, let's remind ourselves

:39:35.:39:37.

of some of the best bits MUSIC: Something Just Like This

:39:38.:39:39.

by The Chainsmokers Coldplay. Physically, Andy

:39:40.:40:06.

Murray is not right. He's in the greatest

:40:07.:40:30.

form of his life. Venus Williams is back

:40:31.:40:32.

in the Wimbledon final Jamie and Martina Hingis,

:40:33.:40:33.

mixed doubles champions. This match slipping away

:40:34.:40:51.

from Venus Williams. Garbine Muguruza is

:40:52.:41:06.

the Wimbledon champion! Roger Federer takes another

:41:07.:41:14.

step towards history. The first man to win eight

:41:15.:41:22.

Championships here at Wimbledon. We can now speak to our

:41:23.:41:42.

tennis correspondent Just a peerless performance from

:41:43.:41:54.

Federer and from the start of the tournament he looked different, he

:41:55.:41:57.

looked like a winner. Give us some idea, you watch him all the time, of

:41:58.:42:04.

what he has been like to watch for you? Nobody could lay a glove on him

:42:05.:42:09.

over two weeks, despite the fact that he is 35 and took six months

:42:10.:42:16.

out and won the Australian Open in January. Here, he didn't have to

:42:17.:42:21.

play Rafael Nadal, who was beaten by Gilles Muller of Luxembourg and that

:42:22.:42:29.

is part of game. He has not dropped a single set and playing guys who

:42:30.:42:33.

are tricky opponents who, are younger than him. No man since Borg

:42:34.:42:40.

in 76 has done that. He has never looked in trouble. It was a shame

:42:41.:42:49.

that the final was an anticlimax, because of Cilic's nasty blisters.

:42:50.:42:54.

You can't take it away from him, to have won eight titles over 14 years

:42:55.:43:00.

and the scary thing is for the west of the world, if we are predicting

:43:01.:43:05.

who will win next year, he will probably be the first name on the

:43:06.:43:10.

list. Is the key he hasn't placed as much tennis as anyone else, do you

:43:11.:43:14.

think we will see this generation of players doing the same as him and

:43:15.:43:18.

actually not playing every tournament? I think once you get

:43:19.:43:24.

into your 30s, you need to be clever. Federer took the decision,

:43:25.:43:29.

because of a knee problem, quite a serious knee problem after Wimbledon

:43:30.:43:32.

last year that ewould take six months out and it has paid

:43:33.:43:37.

dividends, that is not practical for everybody. Some would feel like they

:43:38.:43:41.

lost rhythm. But it worked for him. The length of the season is the

:43:42.:43:48.

issue. If you're one of the elite players, the season is 46 weeks

:43:49.:43:54.

long. You don't need to play every week, but it gives almost no time

:43:55.:43:58.

for rest and that is a lesson, Rafael Nadal said something similar

:43:59.:44:02.

by closing down his season early last year. And Novak Djokovic and

:44:03.:44:06.

Andy Murray who have injuries, you have got to be careful if you want

:44:07.:44:13.

to prolong your career. Johanna Konta didn't go as far as she could,

:44:14.:44:19.

but it was a turning point for her, changing her rankings and brought

:44:20.:44:25.

her to the attention of British public and she could now step up to

:44:26.:44:31.

the next level. If fact she has had -- the fact she had the success in

:44:32.:44:38.

Britain made a difference. You're not going to get the same headlines

:44:39.:44:46.

in the UK when you're playing in a different time zone to play as she

:44:47.:44:51.

did is a fabulous start, given she hadn't won more than one match at

:44:52.:44:55.

Wimbledon. She is the new world No 4. You don't do that by just a good

:44:56.:45:02.

run at Wimbledon. She has been consis tebt and hard courts are her

:45:03.:45:08.

best surface and she could end the year as world No 1. She said that

:45:09.:45:17.

was her goal, we talk about tournament and get interested in

:45:18.:45:22.

Wimbledon, but she wanted that nocht 1 ranking. We have to talk about

:45:23.:45:25.

Andy Murray and that hip. What is next for him?

:45:26.:45:32.

I think he is weighing up his options and his team are keeping

:45:33.:45:39.

their cards close to their chest. Surgery is an option, considering it

:45:40.:45:43.

is a serious problem, but I have heard no official talk that is the

:45:44.:45:45.

root they're going to go down. Will a period of rest by enough to make

:45:46.:45:51.

the problem disappear? US Open starts in just six weeks, you'd

:45:52.:45:55.

think Andy Murray would need to play at least one event before that to

:45:56.:45:58.

get in the sort of shape required. There has to be a huge question mark

:45:59.:46:02.

as to whether he will be at the US Open. It would be a huge blow to him

:46:03.:46:08.

to miss that, but if it enabled him to rest his hip and prepare

:46:09.:46:11.

thoroughly for the start of 2018, to go into next year fully fit, at the

:46:12.:46:17.

age of just 30 he could have at least two really, really strong

:46:18.:46:20.

years in front of him. That's the dilemma he is wrestling with at the

:46:21.:46:25.

moment. Rosol, it is wonderful to see you in that glorious, gorgeous

:46:26.:46:29.

place. Lovely to talk to you. It is nice to talk to somebody at

:46:30.:46:34.

Wimbledon. We have enjoyed watching you there! Carol has been there for

:46:35.:46:42.

what feels like decades! What price would you put on Roger Federer for

:46:43.:46:45.

overseas sports personality of the year? He's got a decent shout. He

:46:46.:46:50.

has one might it three times so far. But I can tell you, we have an

:46:51.:46:54.

exclusive announcement coming fight now... Drum roll! -- coming right

:46:55.:47:02.

now. The sports personality of this year will be held in Liverpool! It

:47:03.:47:11.

was there in nine years ago. At the Echo Arena, this December, Mark your

:47:12.:47:17.

calendar. Will we see Roger Federer turning up for sports personality of

:47:18.:47:21.

the year? He might be having a rest. Tennis players are busy at that time

:47:22.:47:25.

of year, he's had quite a busy time of it.

:47:26.:47:31.

We have got two balls each... That have a quick... Oh, shame! Finally,

:47:32.:47:45.

we've done it! Two between ours. Oh, no, not quite. One each! When

:47:46.:47:52.

everybody else was doing it it was a lot further away! It doesn't matter!

:47:53.:48:00.

They also have proper tennis balls, we have soft ones in the studio. It

:48:01.:48:08.

is the Open this week, Gary Player is 81 years old, this is an

:48:09.:48:13.

81-year-old, he is not going to backflip, is he?! Yes, he is! He

:48:14.:48:18.

doesn't land perfectly, but he is 81! Look at that! Isn't it Gary

:48:19.:48:25.

Player who does hundreds of sit-ups? The key to his fitness? I once had a

:48:26.:48:30.

set up competition against him and he absolutely murdered me coming he

:48:31.:48:33.

does 1000 every day at the age of 81. And he also has a massive

:48:34.:48:40.

breakfast, nuts and seeds and yoghurt and blue breeks. You need to

:48:41.:48:44.

write this down, I need to know about this! -- blueberries. You will

:48:45.:48:50.

be doing backflips at 81 as well! What we do with the mug, will go

:48:51.:48:57.

away now?! We might have our coffee in it! That would be perfect.

:48:58.:49:02.

That's might get some weather this morning. I don't know what it's like

:49:03.:49:07.

outside your window this morning, but have a look at the start Mac

:49:08.:49:11.

that is the Humber bridge in the background. Somewhere on the banks

:49:12.:49:18.

of the Humber, Matt has the weather. Good morning, everyone. It will be a

:49:19.:49:21.

similar view for everybody, minus the bridge, obviously. It is exactly

:49:22.:49:26.

36 years since it was opened by the Queen and it was given a grade one

:49:27.:49:31.

listed status, putting it on par with Buckingham Palace and also the

:49:32.:49:36.

houses of commons. But it wasn't quite an easy feat to get to it,

:49:37.:49:40.

because the bridge took 100 years of campaigning to get built. It finally

:49:41.:49:46.

got approval in 1959, and it wasn't until 1973 when construction began.

:49:47.:49:54.

At the time, it was the longest single span suspension bridge,

:49:55.:49:58.

because of the way that the humble works, it is a tidal estuary with a

:49:59.:50:02.

shifting bed and it is a navigable river. Any sort of pillar in the

:50:03.:50:06.

middle of that river would have hampered any navigation up and down.

:50:07.:50:11.

A massive feat of engineering and a glorious sight, great news for it

:50:12.:50:16.

today. As you can see, blue skies overhead. It is a blue sky day in

:50:17.:50:21.

the rest of the UK as well. Pretty hot not just here but it has been

:50:22.:50:27.

over the past few weeks across some parts of Europe. We have seen

:50:28.:50:31.

temperatures reach record-breaking values in parts of southern Europe,

:50:32.:50:35.

temperatures up to 40 degrees. Some of that warmth will come towards us

:50:36.:50:39.

in the next 36 hours. Today is a fresh start compelled with the

:50:40.:50:44.

weekend, but lots of sunshine of the head, warming up rapidly. Patchy

:50:45.:50:49.

cloud in the north-west of Scotland. Cloud in the Midlands will break up.

:50:50.:50:53.

Cloud in the English Channel towards the south-west and Wales. Just note

:50:54.:50:58.

the temperatures, Winston Reid light, very strong sunshine

:50:59.:51:01.

overhead, bear that in mind if you were out for any length of time. --

:51:02.:51:06.

wind Sir Lee like. Temperatures into the 20s widely. 25 in eastern

:51:07.:51:13.

Northern Ireland and eastern parts of Scotland, a bit cooler in Orkney

:51:14.:51:16.

and Checkland where we continue with cloudy conditions into the

:51:17.:51:21.

afternoon. As we finished the day, it finishes dry with clear skies.

:51:22.:51:25.

Tonight it will be drier across-the-board. There will be some

:51:26.:51:29.

cloud towards the south-west of the country, and cloud in the far North

:51:30.:51:32.

of Scotland. Under clear skies, mist and fog may form, temperatures

:51:33.:51:37.

dropping a bit, a contrast from day to night at the moment. It is going

:51:38.:51:42.

to be even warmer tomorrow. A few. There will be cloud in the West,

:51:43.:51:46.

sunny spells breaking through, breeze in the south and east. For

:51:47.:51:51.

you it might just be a touch cooler compared with what we are seeing

:51:52.:51:54.

today. The warmest weather likely to be across the western parts of the

:51:55.:51:59.

Midlands into East Wales. 27-28d, maybe 29 deg is possible. Notice we

:52:00.:52:07.

will have some lightning storms to finish Tuesday across the

:52:08.:52:10.

south-west. Mainly lightning, not a huge amount of rain, but as they

:52:11.:52:14.

pushed their way north, torrential rain storms into Wednesday,

:52:15.:52:18.

particularly across the north-west. Brighter skies for a time but with

:52:19.:52:22.

very humid air in place, it could get close to 30 so obvious in

:52:23.:52:25.

eastern England, setting off some isolated severe storms across

:52:26.:52:30.

England and Wales. Picking up where they are going to be is a bit

:52:31.:52:33.

uncertain and difficult. Keep checking the forecast of the next

:52:34.:52:37.

day or so. Either way, they will be out of the way by Thursday. Fresh

:52:38.:52:42.

air for just about all of us. There will be some rain in Scotland and

:52:43.:52:46.

Northern Ireland. Not quite as one to end the week as we start the

:52:47.:52:50.

week, but the peak will come Tuesday into Wednesday -- not quite as warm.

:52:51.:52:54.

That is how it's looking from this glorious sight. Goodbye from me, and

:52:55.:52:58.

back to you both in the studio. Where is this one, is it still with

:52:59.:53:03.

you? This one is gone! Oh, what a shame, thank you so much! We will

:53:04.:53:10.

see Matt later on in the week as well.

:53:11.:53:12.

It's more than 1,000 years since the lynx

:53:13.:53:14.

became extinct in the UK, but campaigners hope a decision

:53:15.:53:17.

later today could change that. An application being considered

:53:18.:53:19.

by Natural England could see them released into Kielder Forest

:53:20.:53:21.

But the return of a major predator is worrying farmers.

:53:22.:53:24.

Breakfast's Graham Satchell has got all the details.

:53:25.:53:27.

The last lynx in Britain was killed for its fur 1,300 years ago.

:53:28.:53:32.

The application going in to Natural England today

:53:33.:53:34.

Between six and ten wild lynx released into Kielder Forest

:53:35.:53:38.

This is a huge conservation milestone.

:53:39.:53:43.

This is the first licence ever submitted to reintroduce lynx

:53:44.:53:46.

This is a life-sized cutout of a lynx, so that's actually

:53:47.:53:55.

how big a real lynx is, so they aren't that big,

:53:56.:53:58.

Paul O'Donoghue from the Lynx Trust has been doing a consultation,

:53:59.:54:02.

talking, listening and explaining and the children at Kielder First

:54:03.:54:04.

So lynx live all over the world, and in human history, a healthy

:54:05.:54:20.

wild lynx has never, ever, ever attacked a human

:54:21.:54:22.

There's a genuine excitement here and enthusiasm

:54:23.:54:25.

They do look really nice and it's good that they don't hurt

:54:26.:54:29.

They might not hurt people, but lynx are expert hunters.

:54:30.:54:37.

Deer eat out the understory, they overgrazed, and if you see now

:54:38.:54:49.

there's very little understory around, so there's not really many

:54:50.:54:54.

places for small mammals and birds to nest, so lynx are needed

:54:55.:54:57.

to control that balance, to balance the ecosystem.

:54:58.:54:59.

Not according to sheep farmers, who say deer are not a problem

:55:00.:55:02.

I think it's absolutely a stupid idea for a predator that's not been

:55:03.:55:07.

in this country for 1,000 years to be released where it's going

:55:08.:55:14.

As far as I'm concerned, the lynx will go for the easy target,

:55:15.:55:21.

Farmers would be compensated for any livestock lost,

:55:22.:55:26.

but they are strongly against the issuing of a licence.

:55:27.:55:37.

There's got to be a legal case taken against them, because to release

:55:38.:55:40.

a dangerous animal onto private land, that can't possibly be right.

:55:41.:55:42.

I can understand the farmers being nervous...

:55:43.:55:46.

In the local pub, Mike Brown is thinking about his business.

:55:47.:55:50.

One estimate suggests the lynx could bring around ?30 million

:55:51.:55:52.

It is the most remote village in England, so we need as many

:55:53.:55:59.

We rely on tourist trade, that's 99% of the trade

:56:00.:56:04.

Will Kielder Forest become the land of the lynx?

:56:05.:56:14.

The decision is now in the hands of Natural England, but if they say

:56:15.:56:17.

yes, experts predict there could eventually

:56:18.:56:20.

be as many as 400 lynx in forests around the UK.

:56:21.:56:22.

Graham Satchell, BBC News, Kielder Forest.

:56:23.:56:30.

And the links of course would be very happy in Game of Thrones! Wind

:56:31.:56:39.

the? I'm sure there has been won in Doctor Who over the years as well.

:56:40.:56:43.

That will be a point for discussion a bit later on in the programme.

:56:44.:56:44.

Game of We've been talking all morning

:56:45.:56:48.

about the fact that the first female Time Lord has been announced

:56:49.:56:51.

for Doctor Who, but another huge series, Game of Thrones,

:56:52.:56:53.

has no shortage of strong women. One of them is the Iron-born

:56:54.:56:56.

warrior Yara Greyjoy. Before we speak to Gemma Whelan,

:56:57.:56:58.

who plays her, let's take some of you may have been up since

:56:59.:57:05.

2am watching episode one of series seven.

:57:06.:57:06.

We've never made our mark upon the world.

:57:07.:57:08.

The great lords of Westeros pay us no mind.

:57:09.:57:10.

Until our little raids buzz through their kingdoms long enough

:57:11.:57:13.

to become a nuisance, then they swat us down.

:57:14.:57:15.

And go right back to forgetting we exist.

:57:16.:57:23.

When I am Queen, we will build a fleet...

:57:24.:57:37.

Oh, authority under threat! That was some series six, we are now down to

:57:38.:57:53.

series seven. You were a smaller character in the build-up to this,

:57:54.:57:57.

but what can you tell us to series seven? Do you develop into one of

:57:58.:58:02.

the main beasts of the show? I can tell you nothing! But I can tell you

:58:03.:58:05.

it's very exciting what happens to you are in this next series, but I

:58:06.:58:08.

can't tell you anything more. Thank you very much for coming on! Don't

:58:09.:58:15.

swirl it for me! There will be people who love the show -- don't

:58:16.:58:18.

spoil it for me. People will have got up at 2am to watch the latest

:58:19.:58:26.

episode. Did you? No! She gets up about an hour after that! What is it

:58:27.:58:31.

like to be involved in a show like that, it must take over your life?

:58:32.:58:36.

It's incredible to be part of it. The production values are so high

:58:37.:58:39.

and they spend so long on every single scene just shooting so much

:58:40.:58:44.

of it, every angle, every kind of possibility for the scene, they

:58:45.:58:47.

shoot the proverbial out of it, if you will. There is so much toys for

:58:48.:58:52.

them in the edit. And they get it just right, the precision of it.

:58:53.:59:00.

You'll be asked to doing something by a director, and of course you

:59:01.:59:03.

trust them, then you see exactly how it cuts together and why you asked

:59:04.:59:06.

to do certain things. It's so exciting to be part of it and

:59:07.:59:08.

everybody cares so much about the show, it's great. And now you love

:59:09.:59:11.

it and you are enthused about it. When you first got the part, you

:59:12.:59:14.

didn't know much about it at all. Is it true that you nearly lost the

:59:15.:59:17.

job, can you explain Brazil and I hope I never nearly lost job but I

:59:18.:59:22.

was certainly pulled up on it. I was very proud of the fact that I had

:59:23.:59:26.

been cast so I put it on my Spotlight Stevie thinking that it

:59:27.:59:36.

was good -- on my CV. People look for those sort of updates, I wasn't

:59:37.:59:40.

told the quiet about it. In hindsight I say, what was I

:59:41.:59:45.

thinking, because we are so embargoed on everything. So you were

:59:46.:59:50.

holding? Hall is a bit strong, the producers. He sat me down and said,

:59:51.:59:58.

that's not what we do around here! But I was just so excited. I mean,

:59:59.:00:04.

you obviously clearly won't tell us anything about this series. And you

:00:05.:00:10.

haven't even told your husband? No, I haven't told him anything. I would

:00:11.:00:13.

also venture that he's not that interested. He very much keeps my

:00:14.:00:17.

feet on the ground. But he doesn't know a thing. If I did tell him, she

:00:18.:00:21.

would forget it. I sometimes practice my lines with him. He makes

:00:22.:00:22.

a very good Daenerys! What are the Game of Thrones fans

:00:23.:00:32.

like, have you met many in the street. Is it that the same level of

:00:33.:00:38.

obsession as Doctor Who? Yes, there is so much love and enthusiasm and

:00:39.:00:45.

sort of predictions of what they think will happen to your character

:00:46.:00:50.

and they try to get spoilers. But I rarely get recognised. There was a

:00:51.:00:53.

couple of people outside this morning and we had a nice chat about

:00:54.:00:57.

whether they stayed up. There is always so much love for the show. It

:00:58.:01:04.

is rare to come across nastiness. Were they in full battle dress? Yes,

:01:05.:01:11.

in full dress. We have been talking about Doctor Who and of course the

:01:12.:01:18.

doctor will be played by a woman. I think it is brilliant. I understand

:01:19.:01:23.

people have their sort of... Strong faithful it should be a man. The

:01:24.:01:28.

doctor is a perfect person to be able to change into a woman or a man

:01:29.:01:34.

or whatever. Let's have a dog next time. Woah. Oh, no the internet

:01:35.:01:40.

broke. But there is no reason why it shouldn't be, it should be just a

:01:41.:01:45.

fantastic actor, not oh it is a first woman. There is no shortage of

:01:46.:01:52.

female leads in Game of Thrones. That's right, we are taking over.

:01:53.:01:57.

You have famous women on your dress. It is an accident, but it is a happy

:01:58.:02:03.

accident. Talking of great actors, many have seen you in Horrible

:02:04.:02:10.

Histories and you played Karen Matthews in a drama that got such a

:02:11.:02:14.

huge response and a very different role to what we have been talking

:02:15.:02:20.

about, but here are some pictures from the set of Moorside. That must

:02:21.:02:27.

have been, so many people remember that case clearly, playing that. I

:02:28.:02:33.

was so thrilled to be cast in that, to even be considered for the part.

:02:34.:02:40.

The team of course have won BAFTAs for their crime dramas and so it was

:02:41.:02:48.

in safe hands and it was so, the script was so, they went over and

:02:49.:02:51.

over it to make it as close to the version of truth they wanted to

:02:52.:02:56.

tell. Still people don't know the whole truth of wh happened. But it

:02:57.:03:02.

with Tuz most accurate thing they managed to find out through a great

:03:03.:03:07.

deal of hard work and they pulled off something extraordinary in

:03:08.:03:13.

making it so, it was just... They honoured everybody involved I think.

:03:14.:03:17.

It is interesting, because having followed the story at the time and

:03:18.:03:21.

reported on it. Karen Matthews, there was so much footage of her,

:03:22.:03:25.

did you watch a lot of that before you played her? Yes, I watched

:03:26.:03:30.

everything that was available. They were great at providing reseven

:03:31.:03:36.

material and I -- research material and I tried to get as involved as I

:03:37.:03:40.

could in the case. I was interested in it when it happened as well. So

:03:41.:03:47.

yeah, I just, and then I was, obviously Paul the director was

:03:48.:03:51.

pivotal in getting me to the point I needed to in certain scenes to be

:03:52.:03:59.

surrounded by those amazing actors. But yeah I was privileged and very

:04:00.:04:03.

happy to be part of such a programme that was so well received. Because

:04:04.:04:08.

it could have gone ther way. Can I ask a personal question? Yes. You

:04:09.:04:14.

are with child I believe. You might have said I'm not! With regards to

:04:15.:04:20.

filming Game of Thrones, have you had to... Work that in? No, I

:04:21.:04:29.

haven't. Not so far. Ooh. It is a very physical role and you had to

:04:30.:04:32.

learn thousand ride a horse? Yes and how to fight. I love it. She is

:04:33.:04:43.

still not going to say. Do you die? LAUGHTER. With all do eventually.

:04:44.:04:51.

That is very true. Thank you. Full marks for trying. I have never been

:04:52.:04:56.

asked that. I nearly said something. Sometimes you can dance around it.

:04:57.:05:01.

It nearly came out. OK. Not the baby. I was going to say, have you

:05:02.:05:08.

got a towel? Thank you very much. Game of Thrones starts tonight on

:05:09.:05:15.

Sky Atlantic. You can see Gemma in that. For how long, who knows? We

:05:16.:05:23.

are none the clearer. So the wait is over and we know who will be the new

:05:24.:05:28.

Doctor Who. We will talk about in a moment. First a lack look at the

:05:29.:05:30.

headlines where you're watching. Hello and welcome back. We have done

:05:31.:07:24.

Game of Thrones, let's do Doctor Who. Shall we ask, do you die? Every

:07:25.:07:36.

guest now. It is all over the front-pages, Jody Whittaker is the

:07:37.:07:38.

new Doctor. The Doctor travels through space

:07:39.:07:40.

and time in a converted blue police box, larger

:07:41.:07:42.

on the inside than The owner of two hearts

:07:43.:07:44.

and a sonic screwdriver, the Time Lord battles aliens

:07:45.:07:48.

to save the world. So why is it such a leap of faith

:07:49.:07:50.

to imagine the character The news that Jodie Whittaker

:07:51.:07:53.

is to take on the role Here is a reminder of

:07:54.:07:57.

the moment she was revealed. That looks like a woman's

:07:58.:08:15.

feet, small feet. I'm not going to be

:08:16.:08:17.

surprised if it's a woman. I'm shocked still,

:08:18.:08:25.

what a good choice. For me as a girl, this is something

:08:26.:08:56.

I never thought was possible. There is always doubts

:08:57.:09:00.

when it's a new doctor and if it's a brilliant actor,

:09:01.:09:02.

it's a brilliant part, it is a brilliant actor,

:09:03.:09:05.

Jody Whittaker's a brilliant actor, But what's interesting is it's

:09:06.:09:07.

going to be very different. Mirror journalist Daniel Jackson

:09:08.:09:24.

is a Doctor Who fan, and joins Are you official lay Whovian? Yes I

:09:25.:09:40.

got teased for being one. Are are you on the scale. About a woman Time

:09:41.:09:45.

Lord, absolutely on board. It has been 54 years, I think we can take

:09:46.:09:52.

this bold new step, can't we? Is that it bold. A lot of people have

:09:53.:09:56.

been contacting us and a few people are saying they won't watch Doctor

:09:57.:10:01.

Who because they feel it is an unnecessary PC step for them in the

:10:02.:10:06.

wrong direction. I have been watching Twitter explode and it is

:10:07.:10:11.

exactly that. A large number of the fans are excited, Jody Whittaker's a

:10:12.:10:17.

great choice. Others will say I will wait and see what she is like. But

:10:18.:10:21.

you have a minority that say I'm going to boycott it. It is not the

:10:22.:10:27.

choice of Jody, it is the fact that it is a woman. It could be any

:10:28.:10:35.

woman. It worries me, if your love for the show is so strong, how is it

:10:36.:10:40.

so fragile that putting in a woman is enough to make you boycott it.

:10:41.:10:46.

These are good questions, it seems extraordinary in this, to even have

:10:47.:10:50.

this discussion. It is a fictional character. Does it matter? Nothing

:10:51.:10:58.

will change at the heart of Doctor Who, time travel, adventures,

:10:59.:11:01.

nothing changes because it is a woman at the heart of it. There may

:11:02.:11:06.

be some playful nods to it and an opportunity to have a bit of every

:11:07.:11:12.

day sexism, but it is still the Doctor. Many people have seen her in

:11:13.:11:19.

a number of things, perhaps most famously in Broad church, she was

:11:20.:11:23.

working with the writer and he will be the new writer of Doctor Who as

:11:24.:11:27.

well. So familiar ground. But an opportunity to take it somewhere

:11:28.:11:34.

different do you think? I think Chris will put his own stamp on it.

:11:35.:11:43.

Back when Russell T Davies ran it, she had relationships with David

:11:44.:11:48.

tenant. It is nice there is going to be some short hand and some trust

:11:49.:11:55.

there. Chris is chosen to put a woman into the role and he has

:11:56.:12:00.

chosen Whittaker for a special reason. She must have wowed in the

:12:01.:12:05.

auditions. What has been wonderful to watch over the years is how

:12:06.:12:14.

different each of the Doctors are. You showing the regeneration, one of

:12:15.:12:17.

the lines that the ninth doctor said, I might have two heads or no

:12:18.:12:22.

head. I don't understand why it is a problem to have a female head. What

:12:23.:12:30.

about a male companion, because the companions change regularly. It is

:12:31.:12:34.

important if there is a companion or companions that the story they want

:12:35.:12:37.

to tell is the most important thing. I don't think just because we have a

:12:38.:12:42.

female doctor we have to balance it out necessarily. But some would say

:12:43.:12:49.

it is fair play to have hunky young men running around and falling in

:12:50.:12:58.

gravel quarries. Gravel quarries? It is a very 70s thing. People have

:12:59.:13:03.

said the talk of the 13th doctor. It is actually 14th. 15th. They mention

:13:04.:13:10.

John Hurt. The war doctor. Yes he was a legend in that episode. Why

:13:11.:13:20.

15th. Within the myth of the show different tenants doctor regenerated

:13:21.:13:29.

back into David's doctor. I'm happy to call her the 13th Doctor. And

:13:30.:13:34.

leave it there. Thank you for joining us.

:13:35.:13:36.

But now on BBC One, it's time for Right on the Money,

:13:37.:13:41.
